The cash transaction, totaling approximately $20 million, gives the buyer manufacturing capability, selected product lines, intellectual property and access to an expanded life sciences customer base, but leaves Ciphergen rights to the diagnostics market. In a separate agreement, Bio-Rad has invested $3 million in equity in the firm and has agreed to supply it with reagents and instruments.
