ArchiMed and management have sold EUROLyser to Antech Diagnostics, a subsidiary of Mars Veterinary Health


EUROLyser, headquartered in Salzburg, Austria, is a leading diagnostics company focusing on the development and design of point-of-care testing (POCT) equipment and kits for the veterinary and human healthcare markets. EUROLyser’s patented technology and the usage of high-standard reagents in closed systems enables customers to obtain high quality test results. The products, including analyzers, proprietary test kits and reagents, are sold through a global distribution network in Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific region.

The Deal

Since its inception in 2005, EUROLyser has become a global leading player in the POCT business with strongly growing revenues. After the acquisition of a majority stake by ArchiMed in 2019, EUROLyser received strategic and operational support to further drive the strong development and pursue an ambitious growth as well as expansion strategy. ArchiMed’s strong experience in the industry and the implemented strategic measures resulted in a great performance of EUROLyser, increasing the profit more than two-fold, boosting average annual sales growth to more than 25% during its holding period and raising the interest of other market participants.

Our Perspective

A well-adapted process design and vis-á-vis communications paired with strong execution capacities resulted in a fast-track due diligence process with the favored bidder and the completion of the transaction. Involving offices in the United States, Switzerland and Germany, the process is an example of Lincoln International’s joint capabilities in the healthcare sector.
