The performance of the VerifyNow system has been demonstrated in numerous clinical studies, and we have thousands of satisfied customers around the world," said Accumetrics Chief Executive Officer Timothy I. Still. "I am confident that combining Accumetrics with ITC provides the best opportunity to accelerate the global adoption of the VerifyNow system."

Now that the transaction has closed, the process of integrating the ITC and Accumetrics businesses will begin immediately and the leadership teams will work closely to insure a seamless transition for customers. 

The combined company will assume a new name, Accriva Diagnostics, and its corporate headquarters will be established in San Diego.
