On the afternoon of March 16th, Thermo Fisher Scientific announced the acquisition of IntegenX, a forensic and law enforcement agency to rapidly test DNA platform suppliers, but the terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

The initiative will complement Thermo Fisher's existing chemicals needed for human identification, and IntegenX said the RapidHIT platform, software analysis tools and related consumables are "highly compatible" with Thermo Fisher's short tandem repeat chemistry.

At present, IntegenX provides technical support to prosecutors and law enforcement agencies in 17 countries.
