NEW YORK, July 18 - Nonlinear Dynamics announced today that it has decided not to renew its OEM agreement to supply Amersham Biosciences' proteomics group with 2D gel analysis software.
This means that Amersham will no longer use Nonlinear Dynamics software in its ImageMaster 2D, ImageMaster 2D Evolution, Ettan Progenesis Workstation or Ettan Progenesis Discovery products.
The company has had this OEM agreement with Amersham since 1996.
"However we feel that Nonlinear and Amersham Biosciences' priorities within proteomics have diverged over the past two years," said Will Dracup, Nonlinear Dynamics' CEO, in a statement. "We therefore felt it was no longer in our best interests to be represented by them within this market."
This disclosure follows Wednesday's announcement by Amersham and GeneBio that Amersham would integrate GeneBio's Melanie 2-D gel analysis software into the ImageMaster image analysis application
