Agilent Technologies, Inc.’s acquisition of Switzerland-based Genohm SA


Pestalozzi advised Agilent Technologies, Inc., a Company listed on the New York Stock Exchange, on the acquisition of Genohm SA, a developer of highly differentiated, on-premise and cloud-based software solutions for laboratory management.

Genohm’s main laboratory software automation suite, SLIMS, is a digital platform that provides laboratories with a rapidly deployable and seamless laboratory information management system (LIMS) and electronic lab notebook (ELN) environment that is used in biobanks, research labs and next gen sequencing facilities.

This acquisition enhances Agilent’s current software portfolio, adding LIMS and workflow management, while expanding ELN capability. This combination will allow Agilent to bring greater context to analytical data, enabling scientists to generate results more efficiently.

Pestalozzi advised Agilent Technologies on the legal aspects of this transaction with a team led by Sébastien Roy (Partner – Corporate / M&A, in picture), assisted by Jean-Baptiste Lhôte (Associate – Corporate / M&A), Frédéric Moioli (Junior Associate – Corporate / M&A).
