EAG acquires ABC Labs
The US analytical and testing services company, Evans Analytical Group (EAG – Sunnyvale, California), has acquired US contract research organisation Analytical Bio-Chemistry Laboratories (ABC Laboratories - Columbia, Missouri). EAG is a private company, majority owned by US-based Odyssey Investment Partners. “As government regulations continue to evolve, our clients seek partners with broad capabilities to provide a full suite of laboratory testing services,” says EAG chief executive officer Siddhartha Kadia. The combination of the EAG ChemEco and ABC businesses will provide an unparallelled capacity for scientific studies in biology and chemistry, and specifically in analytical chemistry, residue analysis, avian and aquatic ecotoxicology studies, plant metabolism testing, and environmental fate studies, he adds.
