AMSTERDAM, April 11 (Reuters) - Dutch biotech firm Crucell CRCL.ASCRXL.O will be delisted from Euronext Amsterdam after the close of trading on Monday, following its takeover by U.S. healthcare company Johnson & Johnson (JNJ.N).

Crucell listed in Amsterdam in 2000 and its delisting concludes a tense takeover which was strongly resisted by some shareholders who said the offer price was too low. During this period, Crucell faced additional problems when one of its production plants was contaminated.
