Acquisition in safety assessment

Instem has announced the acquisition, for up to $4.6m, of a US-based provider of software for safety assessments.  Leadscope’s software provides computer models that predict toxicity of chemical compounds – the systems are so advanced that the FDA allows them to replace animal testing in certain limited situations. A strong fit with Instem’s existing safety assessment business and its KnowledgeScan offering, this deal appears a well-considered and useful extension to the group’s position.
