Agilent Technologies - Genohm

Genohm is a developer of highly differentiated, on-premise and cloud-based software solutions for laboratory management based in Switzerland. Agilent Technologies is a global leader in life sciences, diagnostics, and applied chemical markets, publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange. 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. Genohm also has an application marketplace with preconfigured workflows to enable rapid system implementation across a broad range of industries and scientific workflows. The acquisition enhances Agilent’s current software portfolio, adding LIMS and workflow management, while expanding ELN capability.

"Corum’s negotiation ‘weight’ and diplomacy skills added a lot to the process, not only in terms of price, but also in terms of (relative) peace and quiet."

The Corum advisers were on call to keep us on track, on message, and advising us when to say yes and when to say no so that we could get the best win/win deal possible.quotes
