BUYING A CLINICAL LAB

 

Thinking About Buying A Laboratory?

We have heard many buyers complain that it’s hard to find labs for sale because they often are not listed anywhere. Lighthouse Lab Services offers a network that is the missing link between clinical lab buyers and sellers. Our Buying + Selling Team at Lighthouse Lab Services will help you find the right clinical laboratory as well as empower you to make the right decision.

Common Reasons to Buy a Lab:

CLIA CERTIFICATES

The labs we have for sale range from just a CLIA certification to a fully functioning CLIA Laboratory.

MERGERS + ACQUISITIONS

We often help large laboratories expand their national footprint through the acquisition of small and medium laboratories.

CUSTOMER ACCOUNTS

Many labs find it easier to increase sample volume by acquiring customer accounts through the purchase of another laboratory in their market.

INSURANCE CONTRACTS

As most lab owners are aware receiving in-network status with commercial payers can often be a large arduous process or even a dead end; let us help you have in-network status through either the purchase of another lab or the brokerage of a lab to lab referral agreement.

STATE LICENSES

In addition to all of the federal CLIA regulatory requirements, many states have added additional regulations. We can help assure that you purchase a laboratory with the appropriate state credentials to perform the appropriate laboratory testing you desire. Alternatively, we can assist existing laboratory owners with credentialing to enable them to provide lab testing services in any of the states.

Why Work With a Us?

Many labs aren’t publicly listed, which is a huge inconvenience for buyers. However, we have the network to stay ahead of the lab market, bringing you options sooner. We work with sellers and have access to lab owners whom we can approach about selling. We can provide expert opinions when it comes to valuations, as well as assistance with purchase negotiations. Our Team also has the ability to have laboratories inspected by professional lab inspectors, and we can assist with the vetting of laboratory financials and information.

Building vs. Buying a Lab

When it comes to starting a lab you have two options as a business owner: Building a new Laboratory or buying an existing one. Both are great options, but both come with their pros and cons. Since Lighthouse Lab Services offers solutions in all areas of the clinical lab industry, we can help you determine the best option.

Empowering You To Make the Right Decision

We have heard many buyers complain that it’s hard to find labs for sale because they’re so often not listed anywhere. Lighthouse Lab Services offers a network that is the missing link between clinical lab buyers and sellers. Our Buying + Selling Team at Lighthouse Lab Services is concerned with helping you find the right clinical laboratory as well as empowering them to make the right decision.

 

We also offer services for due diligence 

when buying, selling or starting your lab:

LAB VALUATIONS

Not only do we help you buy or sell a lab—we can also assist you with accurately valuing the lab in question. This ensures that you either get a competitive price on the laboratory you are purchasing or that you get the top dollar for the laboratory that you are selling. Should you need a more rigorous lab valuation that stands up to stricter legal and accounting standards, we can also assist you with getting values ranging from one to five stars.

LAB INSPECTIONS

When buying a lab, you can rely on our lab inspection services to help you make a sound decision in your lab purchase. Once you’re ready to start your chosen lab, an inspection can help you identify issues prior to federal inspection and can serve as due-diligence inspections for those buying an existing clinical lab. This gives you the opportunity to address issues before CLIA, COLA, or CAP inspections, avoiding potential penalties.
