Beckman Coulter's first-quarter revenues fell 5.3 percent, but were flat in constant currency terms, as the firm's cash instrument sales declined. The firm's life science and cellular analysis instruments were hit particularly hard by the constrained capital expenditure market.
Up until now, Agencourt's main focus has been on DNA sequencing and sample prep. Cogenics, which has facilities in four countries, also provides genotyping, gene-expression analysis, biological efficacy and safety testing, and a biobanking facility.
