Alpha Innotech, GE Healthcare Extend OEM Pact

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Alpha Innotech said today it has signed a five-year agreement to develop, manufacture, and supply imaging systems to GE Healthcare. 
 
The pact, which Alpha Innotech said covers “a full line of proprietary imaging systems,” continues and expands an OEM agreement the two companies struck in 2005. The products will be sold worldwide exclusively under GE’s brand, Alpha Innotech said.
 
San Leandro, Calif.-based Alpha Innotech said it aims to combine bioinformatics software, reagents, and tools for the functional genomics, proteomics, and cell analysis markets.
 
“Combining GE Healthcare’s worldwide reach and expertise in biological applications with Alpha Innotech’s expertise in imaging technologies will provide researchers with completely integrated products for their research,” Sia Ghazvini, VP for marketing and business development at Alpha Innotech, said in a statement.
 

Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
