NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – GE Healthcare has inked an agreement to acquire cellular imaging products firm Applied Precision for an undisclosed sum.
Applied Precision's products, which include high-resolution and super-resolution microscopy instruments, are expected to complement GE Healthcare's In Cell analyzers that are used for high-throughput sub-cellular analysis in cell biology research.
GE Healthcare said that it will retain Applied Precision's facility in Issaquah, Wash.
"The worldwide resources of GE Healthcare will allow us to significantly widen our reach into new markets and provide a stronger support network for our existing customers," Applied Precision CEO Joe Victor said in a statement.
The firms expect to close the deal in the second quarter of this year.
