On October 26, 2015, Sunquest announced that its parent company Roper Technologies had acquired both CliniSys Group Limited and Atlas Medical. The press release noted, however, that "[c]ompletion of the CliniSys acquisition is dependent upon receiving approval from the competition authorities in Germany and the United Kingdom," and that "[c]ollaboration between Sunquest and CliniSys will not begin until formal approval is received." The Competition & Markets Authority ruled in favor of the acquisition on December 11, 2015, and CliniSys announced the acquisition was complete on January 26, 2016.
On November 10, 2016, Sunquest revealed that it had acquired UNIConnect LC for an undisclosed sum. Sunquest said that, in conjunction with its April 2016 acquisition of GeneInsight, the integration of UNIConnect and GeneInsight would allow them to create "an end-to-end solution for molecular and genetic testing." Sunquest stated that integration of UNIConnect with GeneInsight was underway in March 2017, expected to be completed in May. By the summer of 2017, the UNIConnect website showed an image indicating the integration was complete, revealing the new name as Sunquest Mitogen.
On January 5, 2022, CliniSys Group Limited announced that it was acquiring HORIZON Lab Systems, LLC and its laboratory information management system (LIMS), adding that "[t]he acquisition extends CliniSys’ laboratory testing, diagnostics, and management capabilities further into the public health sector and related markets, such as environmental, water quality testing, public health, toxicology, and agricultural testing." Nearly two weeks later, CliniSys announced it and HORIZON would combine with Sunquest Information Systems, Inc., which CliniSys parent Roper Technologies acquired in 2016. It was further reported that HORIZON LIMS may combine with Sunquest's LIS, Sunquest Laboratory. The same report suggested that "[t]he expanded firm will be known by the CliniSys name, although it’s possible that Sunquest will keep its branded product line." As of late March 2022, it's not clear how all three entities will combine their assets; each company's product website still operates independently.
