NEW YORK (360Dx) — Transfusion and transplantation diagnostics company Immucor announced today that it has signed a 10-year agreement to provide Canada's CoLabs Laboratory Medical Network with its automated blood testing instrumentation and data-management technology.

Under the terms of the deal, CoLabs will install Immucor's Neo and Echo automated immunohematology testing instruments at its two high-volume labs, and one Echo instrument at each of its other 11 sites.
