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.
