DiaSorin S.p.A. (‎Saluggia‎, Italy) has announced that its Board of Directors has unanimously approved and signed a definitive merger agreement for DiaSorin to acquire Luminex Corporation (Austin, TX, USA) for approximately USD 1.8 billion.

Luminex develops, manufactures and sells proprietary biological testing technologies and products with leading applications throughout the Diagnostics and Life Science industries. Luminex is a leader in multiplexing technology, one of the fastest growing markets in the molecular space, with more than 900 active clients. With its first-class technology and extensive Life Science solutions supporting clinical and pharmaceutical research and development, Luminex is highly complementary to DiaSorin's growing diagnostics segment.

The acquisition will broaden DiaSorin's positioning in the molecular diagnostics space and strengthen its existing value proposition in line with its strategic priorities. Through the acquisition, DiaSorin will gain access to Luminex's molecular diagnostics multiplexing technology and a portfolio that will strengthen its existing offering while expanding its presence in the US. The acquisition will also provide access to Luminex's applications throughout the Life Science industry, supporting access to academic and scientific research to shape market intelligence on future market trends, engaging with biopharma companies to drive opportunities for long-term partnerships (e.g. vaccine development, biological drugs) and access to clinical multiplexing assays for future Value Based Care projects based on diagnostic algorithms.

"Luminex perfectly fits with our strategy to grow our positioning in the molecular diagnostics space, to broaden our presence in the US, and to create additional value through Life Science offerings," said Carlo Rosa, CEO of DiaSorin Group. "Together, DiaSorin and Luminex will provide a unique offer to laboratories, researchers, clinicians and patients worldwide, matching our extensive solutions in immunodiagnostics and molecular diagnostics with Luminex's outstanding expertise in multiplexing technology and recognized leadership in life science applications."

"The combined company should provide new opportunities for our employees within a larger company that is poised to become a strong leader in the molecular diagnostics and life sciences space, and I want to thank all of our employees, customers, and partners for their contributions over our 25+ year history," said Nachum "Homi" Shamir, Chairman, President and CEO of Luminex.
