Element Materials Technology recently announced that with the completed acquisition of JMI Laboratories in 2021, it has built out its life sciences testing capabilities for the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries.
The acquisition added more than 1,000 experts in 23 facilities in North America and Europe and marked a strategic shift for the London-based company to increase its global presence in life sciences and connected technologies.
