In particular, its health unit reported organic growth of 6%, as clinical solutions performed well, with 10% organic growth.

The Amsterdam-based group said that its full-year 2017 outlook remains unchanged, with it still expecting to deliver solid organic growth and further improvement in its margin, while reporting mid-single-digit growth in its diluted adjusted EPS at constant currencies.
