ABI on R&D Spending: ”An important effort in planning for fiscal 2005, which began on July 1, was to rebalance R&D programs by focusing on a smaller number of projects that met rigorous financial and market analyses. These projects are primarily in the areas of functional genomics and mass spectrometry, although we have decided to increase investments in DNA sequencing.”

— Lori Murray, senior manager, public relations, Applied Biosystems


ABI on Budgeting for R&D: “We have established a target for R&D expenditures at approximately 12 percent of revenues — a level slightly higher than the historical average at Applied Biosystems.”

— Lori Murray, senior manager, public relations, Applied Biosystems


ABI on its new organizational structure: “We believe Applied Biosystems is well-positioned for continued leadership in the life sciences tools market via the tools we provide for structural and functional genomics; proteomics; small molecule and metabolite identification and quantitation; and via our proprietary bioinformatics platforms. The changes that we are implementing across the businesses are designed to improve our ability to develop and introduce new products and manage our current product portfolio. In part, these changes recognize that our customers today require more sophisticated product solutions and service offerings than were the norm only a few years ago. The changes are also designed to enhance customer focus in the organization and alignment with operational and financial goals. We believe the new organizational structure should enable increased management focus on both near-term and future business growth.”

— Lori Murray, senior manager, public relations, Applied Biosystems
