Promega Buys Turner Biosystems

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Life sciences products company Promega has purchased Turner Biosystems for an undisclosed sum, Promega said today. The two companies already have an established partnership for integrated bioluminescent technologies.

Turner offers microplate single tube reader luminometers, fluorometers, photometers, and multimode instruments for life sciences labs.

"Over the years, innovating with Promega has created productive instrument/reagent systems that scientists highly value. Both companies are eager to optimize this total systems approach for the bench top," Turner President Mike Molkelke said in a statement.

"Scientists value quality integrated systems because it frees them up to focus on the other demands in their lab. This purchase allows us to offer these systems for more applications," Promega CEO Bill Linton added.
