NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Thermo Fisher Scientific today said it has acquired sample-extraction and liquid-chromatography company Cohesive Technologies for an undisclosed sum.
The deal, announced a little more than a month after Thermo sealed its merger with Fisher Scientific, aims to expand Thermo’s services by coupling Cohesive’s sample prep with its mass spec to “create end-to-end workflow solutions for drug and other organic molecule analyses.”
The company said this will both improve its sample throughput and raise the detection limits for its LC/MS analysis business.
Cohesive Technologies has yearly revenues of roughly $15 million, Thermo said.
Financial terms of the deal were not released.
