Oct. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Biohit Oyj, a Finnish maker of diagnostics equipment, rose the most since January 2010 after selling its liquid-handling business.

Biohit advanced as much as 80 percent to 3.96 euros and rose 47 percent at 12:24 p.m. in Helsinki.

Biohit said yesterday Sartorius AG agreed to buy the liquid-handling business of the Helsinki-based company for 68 million euros ($95.2 million). The deal, subject to clearance by antitrust authorities, is expected to close in December.
