PerkinElmer, Genomic Solutions in Proteomics Distribution Pact

NEW YORK, March 17 - PerkinElmer Life and Analytical Sciences and the Genomic Solutions subsidiary of Harvard Biosciences have entered a distribution agreement for an assortment of proteomics-related technology, the companies said today.


The agreement, effective Jan. 1, 2003, gives PerkinElmer worldwide distribution rights to products that Genomic Solutions will manufacture exclusively for PerkinElmer: the ProXcision proteomics gel cutting robot, and the HybArray 12 DNA hybridization workstation.


The arrangement also gives Genomic Solutions the right to distribute the Proteome 1D analyzer software developed by Nonlinear Dynamics for PerkinElmer.


PerkinElmer, which estimates that the worldwide proteomics market is growing by nearly 40 percent annually, said the agreement would flesh out its proteomics technology offering by adding a gel spot cutter to a suite of tools that currently includes the ProXpress proteomics imaging system, MultiProbe II proteomics workstation for protein digestion and MALDI spotting, TOFprep MALDI spotting system, and prOTOF 2000 MALDI O-TOF mass spectrometer from PerkinElmer and MDS Sciex.
