Luminex has signed a definitive agreement to acquire MilliporeSigma's flow cytometry portfolio for $75 million.

Luminex (Austin, TX) has signed a definitive agreement to acquire MilliporeSigma (Burlington, MA)'s flow cytometry portfolio for $75 million, consisting of approximately $69.9 million to be paid under a Stock and Asset Purchase Agreement and approximately $5.1 million in committed inventory purchases.
