Q3-2021 Laboratory & Diagnostic Services Update

The laboratory services and diagnostics sectors have seen  aggressive M&A activity in the past year. Both major and mid-sized market players have continued to consolidate at a high level. Following a strong first half of the year Q3 saw 32 Diagnostic and Laboratory Services deals including Ignenomix’s $1.4 billion acquisition of Vitrolife.

With COVID-19 revolutionizing the diagnostics industry, point of care solutions have become a leading trend in the space. The ability to rapidly test for infection diseases at an individual’s home and store results in a secure digitalized environment for convenient access improves both efficiency and efficacy. Recent deals in this space support this trend as CA Healthcare Acquisition Corp, a healthcare  focused SPAC, engaged in a reverse merger with Lumira Dx which provides point of care diagnostic services. Thus, Provident anticipates consolidation in the industry will center around simplifying the diagnostics process through various leading-edge technologies. Additionally, with healthcare SPACs raising over $15 billion in 2021, the firm anticipates a frenzy of SPAC acquisitions over the course of the next two years in the diagnostics services space.
