The acquisition strengthens Smiths Detection’s biological-detection capabilities to detect pathogens for broad end-market applications, including in food and agriculture safety.

“PathSensors has developed such a capability – with its multiple threat assays already available, it is able to identify biological threats in minutes and will provide a suitable biological capability to our customers.”
