PAULO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Varian, Inc. (Nasdaq: VARI) today announced that it has acquired the assets of Analogix, Inc., a privately owned company based in Burlington, Wisconsin, for approximately $11 million in cash plus assumed net debt, subject to certain net asset adjustments. The transaction also includes the opportunity for additional purchase price payments over three years, depending on future milestones and financial performance.

Analogix is a technology leader in the development of consumables and instrumentation for automated compound purification, using flash chromatography, for the pharmaceutical industry.

"The acquisition of Analogix is strategic to the advancement of Varian's goal to grow applications based consumables products and to further broaden its product offering to the pharmaceutical industry," said Garry Rogerson, President and CEO, Varian, Inc.

"The sale of Analogix to Varian is a win-win situation," said Nick DeMarco, President of Analogix. "With a dedicated group of employees, we have been able to bring the company to its current level of success. I am excited for both our employees and our customers to be able to take Analogix to the next level of development and distribution as part of Varian."

The Analogix business produces consumables (pre-packed columns) and automated instrumentation to increase throughput in the critical purification step for organic compounds and peptides.

This acquisition is part of Varian, Inc.'s strategy to strengthen the company's product portfolio, especially in the area of laboratory consumables, with internal research and development and strategic acquisition of complimentary products and technologies.
