Amaxa bought by Lonza

11th June 2008

Amaxa has been bought by a leading life sciences firm for an undisclosed fee.

It was announced last month that the cell discovery market supplier has been taken over by Lonza Bioscience in a bid to enhance its current margins and growth rate.

The acquisition is now subject to the approval of the anti-trust authorities which the firm believes will be making a decision in the third quarter of this year.

Stefan Borgas, chief executive of Lonza, said the move was in line with the firm’s strategy of re-deploying cash into areas of well defined growth opportunities.

"We are excited to welcome the highly qualified and entrepreneurial Amaxa colleagues to join our global business – with this acquisition Lonza further strengthens its position as a worldwide leader in cell discovery," he added.

Founded in 1998 by biologists Gregor Siebenkotten and Rainer Christine, Amaxa claims to be dedicated to enhancing the speed and quality of academic and industrial pharmaceutical research.
