NEW YORK, July 11 - PerkinElmer has agreed to non-exclusively distribute Nonlinear Dynamics' software for automating the analysis of proteins in 2D gel electrophoresis experiments, the companies said Wednesday.
PerkinElmer, based in Boston, has integrated the software platform, called Progenesis, into its ProXpress imaging system for analyzing proteins in 2D gel experiments, and will distribute the software worldwide. Financial details were not disclosed.
The agreement strengthens PerkinElmer's position in the $1.5 billion proteomics market, said John Engel, president of PerkinElmer Life Sciences, in a statement.
Nonlinear Dynamics, based in Newcastle, UK, 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 Dynamics' software.
