GE Healthcare sells Centricity laboratory division, including the Centricity LIS to Cirdan

Northern Irish company Cirdan has acquired the intellectual property and assets of GE Healthcare's Centricity laboratory division, including the Centricity laboratory information system (LIS) known as ULTRA that is widely used in Australia.

As part of the acquisition, Cirdan will continue to support users of the current version of ULTRA, which include the governments of Western Australia and South Australia as well as Healthscope and Primary Health Care.

ULTRA was first launched in Australia in the 1980s by original developer Triple G Systems, which was acquired by GE in 2003.

Cirdan CEO Hugh Cormican said the company planned to further develop the Centricity product range to keep pace with rapid advances in molecular and genetic pathology.

Cirdan will launch version 5 of ULTRA in January 2015. Mr Cormican said this version will be partially developed in Australia, where the company is in the process of setting up an office.

“This will combine the power and performance of the GE LIS products with the pathology imaging modalities under development by Cirdan Imaging,” Mr Cormican said.

Cirdan has set up a subsidiary, Cirdan Ultra, as part of the acquisition, which also involved Bel fast-based digital technology solutions provider Kainos Software.
