SeraCare Life Sciences Acquires KPL



SeraCare Life Sciences, which provides life science products for the diagnostic industry, acquired Kirkegaard and Perry Laboratories (KPL). KPL is a provider of antibodies and related reagents for the diagnostic and life sciences markets. With the acquisition, SeraCare has expanded its portfolio of products designed to help diagnostic researchers develop in vitro diagnostic assays through both off-the-shelf products and custom antibody design.

By acquiring KPL, SeraCare has built upon its position as a life science consumables provider for diagnostic research. KPL’s portfolio of products includes high quality immunochemicals for in vitro diagnostics, including primary and secondary antibodies as well as reagents and kits targeting ELISA, western blotting, immunohistology, protein labeling, nucleic acid labeling, sample preparation, protein purification, and recombinant protein detection and analysis. These products will assist SeraCare’s expansion from its core strength of providing biological products and control materials for infectious disease, women’s health, and genetic testing into oncology, autoimmune, allergy, and companion diagnostics.
