Entegris has acquired Flex Concepts, adding upstream tech to its bioprocessing equipment offering.
The deal – financial details of which have not been divulged – will see Entegris add bioprocessing single-use bags and fluid transfer solutions to its life sciences offering.
“Flex Concepts manufactures quick turn custom configured products primarily for the biopharmaceutical industry. They sell products to some of the top pharma and biopharma companies,” Eric Isberg, director of Life Sciences for Entegris, told BioProcess Insider.
“Flex had primarily focused on the upstream bioprocess and Entegris on the downstream, the addition of Flex’s capabilities provides a total solution offering across the entire bioprocess suite.”
He added the acquisition’s assets will “mesh well” with Entegris’ single-use bag Aramus product line and will help to expand the firm’s presence and quick turn capabilities.
Furthermore, the “addition of Flex brings manufacturing location redundancy to help ensure security of supply of products to the bioprocessing market’s life enhancing products,” he said, as multiple facilities will be able to make the same product for the combined firm’s clients.
