NEW YORK, July 31 – Amersham Pharmacia Biotech agreed to distribute Nonlinear Dynamics’ 2D electrophoresis software package under the ApBiotech’s Ettan brand, the companies announced Tuesday.
Financial details were not disclosed.
Nonlinear Dynamics’ Progenesis software is an automated image analysis system designed for high throughput proteomics. The companies said that the Progenesis software would complement APBiotech’s DeCyder protein differentiation software package.
Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK-based Nonlinear Dynamics made a deal in early July with PerkinElmer to distribute the Progenesis software within PerkinElmer’s ProXpress imaging system for analyzing proteins in 2D gel experiments.
Nonlinear Dynamics has specialized in creating software for electrophoresis analysis over its ten years in existence. The company also has an agreement with Hitachi subsidiary MiraiBio to distribute earlier versions of Nonlinear Dynamic’s software.
