ROCHE EUROPEAN DIAGNOSTICS UNITS WOULD BE FOLDED INTO BOEHRINGER FACILITIES under Roche's integration plan for Boehringer Mannheim. The proposal, which would eliminate 4,000-5,000 of the combined companies' 74,000 employees, calls for Boehringer to take over the functions of Roche's Kaiseraugst, Switzerland and Grenzach, Germany in vitro diagnostics operations. Roche announced a definitive agreement to purchase Boehringer Mannheim parent Corange on May 26 ("The Gray Sheet" June 2, p. 3); the deal is expected to close by the end of the year.
