NEW YORK, March 12 - PerkinElmer will build and sell a new automated system for processing protein microarrays co-developed by its Life Sciences division and NextGen Sciences.
Under the terms of this agreement, PerkinElmer Life Sciences will manufacture and have exclusive worldwide distribution rights for the system, called the ProteinArray workstation.
Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. However, Jim Monahan, a spokesman for PerkinElmer Life Sciences, told GenomeWeb that the tool itself "is still in the developmental stage."
He added that the workstation, which will be showcased at a microarray conference next week, will be ready to hit the market sometime in September.
