Private equity investment firm GI Partners has announced the completion of the acquisition of global clinical trial technology firm Clinical Ink.

The transaction to acquire a minority interest in Clinical Ink was announced earlier this month.

Clinical Ink, which captures and integrates electronic data from clinical sites through its Lumenis platform, is now owned by the investment firm.

However, Clinical Ink’s existing stockholder, NovaQuest, will continue as a minority investor in the company, as well as Clinical Ink’s management team, which has also invested significantly in the transaction.

With this acquisition, GI Partners intends to accelerate Clinical Ink’s innovation in clinical trial ‘workflow solutions’.

Clinical Ink’s technology has so far been deployed in over 300 studies in Phases I to IV.
