Scanner Shop Alpha Innotech to Develop, Manufacture Imaging Systems for GE Healthcare

NEW YORK, Sept. 1 (GenomeWeb News) - Alpha Innotech, a maker of high-content cellular-analysis tools, will develop, manufacture, and supply a full line of imaging systems to GE Healthcare, Alpha Innotech said last week.

 

The products will be sold exclusively worldwide under the GE brand in the life science research market.

 

It is unclear exactly what type of imaging systems Alpha Innotech will be manufacturing for GE. CBA News, a GenomeWeb News sister publication, was unable to contact representatives from either company by press time.

 

Last year, Alpha Innotech introduced its NovaRay scanner for high-content cellular analysis. It was adapted from the company's existing detection instrument for reading microarrays and gels.
