Procuritas Capital Investors VII (Procuritas) acquires Precision BioLogic (PBI) and subsidiary (Affinity Biologicals), fast-growing niche leaders in hemostasis diagnostics and research. PBI has in recent years launched a number of successful diagnostics products and is active in a growing market, supported by long-term trends such as ageing population, emerging new therapies, and increased access to healthcare across the globe.  

“We are excited to team up with Procuritas for the next step in our growth journey. Believing in innovation through collaboration, this partnership opens new possibilities for us to expand our reach, accelerate progress, and make an even greater impact in the field of coagulation diagnostics. We see many new opportunities ahead while continuing our mission to drive diagnostics forward and improve lives worldwide,” says Paul Empey, President and CEO of Precision BioLogic.

“Precision has created value through collaborative relationships with our people, our customers, and our partners across the industry,” said Michael Scott, early investor and CEO for two decades. “We know Procuritas shares these same values – so this change of ownership feels like a good landing spot for everyone. We would like to thank the many people who have contributed to the growth and success of Precision BioLogic over the past 30 years – and we offer warm wishes to the management team as they lead the company into a new era of opportunity and growth.”

Precision BioLogic is focused on FDA cleared reagents and plasma-based products for the North American and European markets. The company has a broad product offering, a successful financial track record, and a very experienced management team. Affinity Biologicals is active in hemostasis research as well as OEM and custom products and services. The investment follows Procuritas’ theme-based strategy and earlier investment in Nordic Biomarker, a leading Swedish provider of coagulation diagnostics assays.

“We have kept a keen eye on Precision BioLogic for a while, and are impressed by the company’s excellent market reputation, high-quality reagents and R&D capabilities. We also see great potential in the coagulation diagnostics industry, which is supported by long-term underlying trends such as increased access to healthcare, development of new therapies, and an ageing population,” says Johan Conradsson, Co-Managing Partner at Procuritas.
