"Our mission is to make healthcare smarter and patients safer."

"Laboratory test results inform the vast majority of patient diagnoses and care planning.

"Sunquest, Data Innovations, CliniSys and Atlas share the same vision in creating solutions that promote patient safety, better outcomes, operational efficiency and financial growth."

The closing of the CliniSys acquisition is based on approval from the competition authorities in Germany and the UK.

The company also entered a definitive agreement to buy Atlas Medical, a US-based provider of clinical process and connectivity solutions.

Roper president Brian Jellison said: "We have now deployed over $1.7bn in acquisitions in 2015."

Earlier this month, Roper closed its acquisition of Aderant Holdings and completed its sale of ABEL Pumps to Hillenbrand.
