Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) is acquiring Denmark-based cancer diagnostic company Dako for $2.2 billion to boost its presence in life science.

The Santa Clara, California-based provider of bio-analytical and electronic measurement services expects the deal to immediately add to its earnings on a non-GAAP basis.

Agilent said the acquisition will accelerate growth in rapidly expanding segments of diagnostic markets.

Dako, with 2010 revenue of around US$340 million, provides antibodies, reagents, scientific instruments and software. Through Dako's Reagent partnership division, Dako sells a portfolio of specific proteins and high-quality reagents for flow cytometry.
