EAG (Evans Analytical Group), a US company providing analytical and testing services to a broad base of customers in the agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries, has acquired the US contract research organization Analytical Bio-Chemistry (ABC) Laboratories. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Like EAG, ABC Laboratories provides product development and analytical testing services for the agrochemical and pharma/biopharma markets. The company offers a complete range of agricultural product development and GLP-compliant environmental testing services for the Agrochemical industry through its Environmental Services division, as well as a comprehensive suite of development and CGMP- and GLP-compliant testing capabilities for small and large molecule therapies and medical devices through its Pharmaceutical Services division. The acquisition of ABC strengthens EAG’s existing laboratories in the US and Europe and further enhances its leadership in the analytical and testing market.

‘ABC has built a very strong reputation with both agrochemical and pharmaceutical clients, and is a strong complementary fit with our business,’ commented Siddhartha Kadia, CEO of EAG. ‘As government regulations continue to evolve, our clients seek partners with broad capabilities to provide a full suite of laboratory testing services. The combination of the EAG ChemEco and ABC businesses will provide an unparalleled capacity for scientific studies in biology and chemistry, and specifically in analytical chemistry, residue analysis, avian and aquatic ecotoxicology studies, plant metabolism testing, and environmental fate studies. In addition, ABC enables us to enter the small and large molecule pharmaceutical contract research business, one of the most dynamic and largest end markets in analytical laboratory testing. We look forward to welcoming our new colleagues at ABC to EAG.’

‘In EAG we have aligned with a great partner that has made a strong commitment to our team going forward,’ said John Bucksath, CEO of ABC. ‘Both of our companies have prioritized cultures of scientific excellence and a client-first mindset EAG has considerable resources, vision and interest in growing its presence in both the agrochemicals and life sciences markets, and we are confident that as part of EAG, ABC will be even better positioned in the marketplace to broaden its service offerings and capabilities. We all look forward to continuing to grow our business with a very strong partner.’
