PharmaVentures is pleased to announce that it has acted as advisor to Chip-Man Technologies Oy (CMT) on its divestment of certain assets to Yokogawa Electric Corporation (Yokogawa). The assets relate to CMTs world leading capabilities in cellular imaging and analysis.

This transaction is the latest in a series of successful global deals in the life science research tools sector for PharmaVentures clients.

Adrian Dawkes, VP, PharmaVentures, who was lead advisor added: "Cellular imaging and analysis technologies are increasingly important in areas such as regenerative medicine and stem cell technology.
