At the same time, there has been a flurry of integration and consolidation at the market level, with 35 mergers and acquisitions in the last 12 months.

Sybron Quietly Builds a Powerhouse

Sybron International, hardly a well-known name in the diagnostics industry, has built a $350 million highly profitable diagnostics business by acquiring small, niche companies. Its latest acquisition, Microgenics Corp., makes it an important player in the drugs of abuse and therapeutic drug monitoring businesses. Microgenics had been part of Boehringer Mannheim Corp. But when Roche bought Boehringer Mannheim, the FTC required Roche to sell off Microgenics for anti-trust reasons. Microgenics was sold last summer to an investor group, which sold it to Sybron.
