Eurofins Scientific, Inc. (FP:ERF) acquired Focus Bio-Inova, Inc., a renowned central laboratory organization providing worldwide laboratory services and custom microbiology antibiotics resistance testing to the pharmaceutical industry in support of the development and commercialization of new therapeutics.

"Had we not been proactive in the marketplace, Eurofins likely would have missed out on a high-quality acquisition that complemented our service offering to the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. The professionalism, timeliness and expertise of George K. Baum's professionals sets them apart in the field of potential services providers Eurofins could have used to help us build our business in North America."
