Siemens Healthineers has agreed to pay an undisclosed amount for Alere's point-of-care blood diagnostics subsidiary, Epocal. The purchase, which will depend on the completion of Abbott's Alere acquisition and regulatory approvals, complements Siemens' point-of-care diagnostics offerings as the company looks to offer a complete range of blood gas solutions to its global customers, said Peter Koerte, Siemens' president of point-of-care diagnostics.
