Baxter continued its buying spree since closing the $625 million pickup of Claris Lifescience’s injectable drug business last year: in March, the company paid $153 million to acquire hemostat and surgical sealant assets from Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals. Baxter reeled in a number of regulatory wins this year, including the August 2018 CE Mark clearance and regulatory approval in Australia for its Evo IQ infusion system. Earlier this year, Baxter landed FDA approval for its Spectrum IQ infusion system with Dose IQ safety software, touting the system as the first to include bi-directional electronic medical records integration.
