PerkinElmer, Nonlinear Dynamics Sell 2D Systems to Korean Proteome Center

NEW YORK, May 30-PerkinElmer Life Science and Nonlinear Dynamics have sold two 2D gel software systems to the Yonsei Proteome Research Center in Korea, the companies said today.

 

The sale is the first of this product in the Asian region.

 

PerkinElmer agreed in July 2001 to be the nonexclusive worldwide distributor for Nonlinear Dynamics bioinformatics products.

 

Progenesis, introduced last year, is an automated gel analysis software system for 2D electrophoresis. It automates and standardizes the process of gel separations.

 

The Yonsei Proteome Research Center is at Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea. It was established in March 2000 and serves as a national core facility for proteomics research. It is conducting joint research programs with the Australian Proteome Analysis Facility, Applied Biosystems' Proteomics Research Center, and protein researchers at Osaka University.

 

Nonlinear Dynamics is a bioinformatics company based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the United Kingdom.
