UNION CITY, Calif., Feb. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Abaxis, Inc. (Nasdaq: ABAX), a medical products company manufacturing point-of-care blood analysis instruments for the medical, research and veterinary markets, announced today a $2.8 million equity investment in Scandinavian Micro Biodevices APS, ("SMB"), a privately-held developer and manufacturer of point-of-care diagnostic products for veterinary use.

SMB, based in Copenhagen, Denmark, has been the original equipment manufacturer of the Abaxis VetScan VSpro point-of-care specialty analyzer since 2008.  The VSpro assists in the diagnosis and evaluation of suspected bleeding disorders and is used routinely prior to surgery.  Additionally, the instrument now provides automated equine fibrinogen testing, an assay used to measure and monitor inflammation in horses.
