We will now focus on realizing our ambitious plans for expanding the reach and growth of our remaining businesses," Dr. Uchida continued. "This is an exciting time for Magellan."

Dynex – Later this month at AACC, Magellan will be previewing its breakthrough Dynex Agility™ ELISA processing system, which brings true automation and extraordinary ease-of-use to what historically has been a tedious and time-consuming process.
