Thermo Fisher Scientific has completed its previously announced acquisition of point-of-care molecular diagnostics provider Mesa Biotech.

Mesa Biotech is known for its Accula system, a point-of-care polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based testing platform for infectious disease diagnosis. Besides COVID-19, Accula also tests for influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and group A Streptococcus.

Mesa Biotech will become part of Thermo Fisher's Life Sciences Solutions segment and is expected to add approximately $200 million in revenue this year, Thermo Fisher said.
