NEW YORK, Oct. 26 (GenomeWeb News) - PerkinElmer's Life and Analytical Sciences business unit reported revenue of $259.1 million for the third quarter of 2005 yesterday, up 6 percent from $243.7 million in the third quarter of 2004.

The company reported GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations of $.20, an increase of 43 percent over GAAP earnings per share of $.14 in the prior-year period.


PerkinElmer spent $21.8 million on R&D during the third quarter of 2005, up slightly from $20.4 million in the comparable period of 2004.
