Everlife-CPC Diagnostics Enters POCT Market in India With Acquisition of Boditech Med Portfolio from Weldon Biotech

7i Capital Advisors acted as the exclusive sell-side advisor to Weldon Biotech on this transaction.

[Chennai, April 2022]: CPC Diagnostics Pvt. Ltd. (“CPC”), a leading provider of Clinical Diagnostic products and services in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh, and the Indian subsidiary of Everlife, has announced the completion of the business transfer of i-chroma brand business from Weldon Biotech India Pvt. Ltd. Under the agreement, CPC will take over the distribution rights of the i-chroma brand of products, which are Point-of-Care Testing (“POCT”) products manufactured by Boditech Med Inc Korea. CPC will take over the existing installations and onboard the team to ensure continuity of after sales service and consumables from Weldon Biotech. This transaction follows on an earlier collaboration agreement signed between Everlife and Boditech in November 2021 to introduce Boditech’s EZ-POC brand to India.

While CPC has already established itself as a major player in laboratory-based clinical diagnostics, the i-chroma and Vet Chroma business provides CPC with accelerated access to a growing POCT market in India, which according to internal estimates is one of the fastest growing IVD segments with a growth rate of more than 20%. Boditech’s i-chroma range of products are especially suited to the Indian market, where a wide and affordable range of test parameters and analyzers can be provided depending on individual customer’s test requirements. Furthermore, the fast turnaround and simple and convenient sample collection could improve access particularly for laboratories in distant areas.
