A Sales and Purchase Agreement (SPA) between both parties was executed on December 29, 2022, and subject to customary closing adjustments the transaction is expected to close in April 2023. Indivumed GmbH, founded in Germany in 2002, has an industry-leading and global reputation for the provision and analysis of clinical biospecimens.

The latter, which is the current IndivuServ business unit of the company, will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crown Bioscience and will incorporate all associated laboratory operations and staff located in Hamburg, Germany and Frederick, MD, USA. ‘Indivumed Therapeutics’, currently known as the IndivuType business unit will continue its groundbreaking work of translating high-quality biospecimens into multi-omics data and focus together with its international clinical partners on data- and AI-driven therapy development in oncology. Crown Bioscience’s proposed acquisition of ‘Indivumed Services’ includes both the expertly curated and characterized biobank comprising of almost one million samples with associated clinical data, and an extensive network of more than 60 clinical divisions in the US, Europe, and Asia. This network provides direct and controlled access to surgical biospecimens and blood samples annotated with comprehensive clinical data, all obtained in accordance with Indivumed’s unique SOPs to assure unrivaled quality, and thereby be suitable for multi-omics analyses and model development. The collection and associated network will also enable and support further expansion of Crown Bioscience’s biomarker development service offerings, as well as market-leading patient-derived xenograft (PDX), ex vivo patient tissue (EVPT), and in vitro tumor organoid platforms. ‘Indivumed Therapeutics’ will continue its global clinical cooperation with leading cancer clinics in Europe, Americas, and Asia and leverage its unique multi-omics database and advanced AI analytics to focus on identifying and validating novel targets and biomarkers to develop individualized cancer therapies.
