Neogen Corporation has acquired a product line used in animal health and hygiene applications from DuPont Animal Health Solutions (DAHS).

The asset purchase includes 14 different product formulations, along with manufacturing process know-how and associated registration information. The purchase price and terms were not disclosed. The addition of these products to Neogen's Animal Safety group adds to the company's strategy of providing biosecurity solutions in the farm production markets. The products also have the potential for use in the veterinary clinic market to maintain sanitary conditions and limit the potential hazards of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. In addition to the asset sale, Neogen also will be able to distribute other DAHS products in North America.

Neogen expects revenues from the acquired products and distribution of other DAHS products to exceed $7 million in its current fiscal year, which began on June 1. Neogen Corporation develops and markets products dedicated to food and animal safety. The company's Animal Safety Division markets a complete line of diagnostics, veterinary instruments, veterinary pharmaceuticals, nutritional supplements, disinfectants, and rodenticides.
