This article was originally published in Clinica
Vickers is to dispose of its entire medical division. The company says that "expressions of interest" from 15 bidders had been received for all or part of the group's medical interests. The sale could realise around £100 million ($159 million). Instrumentarium, the Finnish device manufacturer, bought Datex-Engstrom from Vickers earlier this month (see Clinica No 772, p 11).
