Amersham Biosciences, BioDiscovery Fine-tune CodeLink Software

NEW YORK, Jan. 16-Amersham Biosciences and BioDiscovery will jointly develop and commercialize software to analyze data generated by Amersham CodeLink microarrays, the two companies said today.


BioDiscovery, a specialty software company based in Marina del Rey, Calif., developed a software package for CodeLink when the microarray technology was owned by Motorola.


Amersham acquired the Motorola divisionin July 2002.


This partnership will help CodeLink users identify genes with weak expression signals, and simplifies the move to higher-density arrays, said Amersham.
