Tecan, GE Healthcare Collaborate on Process Development

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – GE Healthcare and Tecan announced today that they have agreed to a marketing collaboration under which process developers will be able to implement protocols and accessories for GE Healthcare's PreDictor 96-well plates on Tecan's Freedom EVO workstations.

The firms said that the predefined protocols and scripts for using GE Healthcare's PreDictor 96-well plates are now embedded in the EVOware software that serves as the control for Tecan's Freedom EVO workstations.

"The combination of GE Healthcare's chemistry and Tecan's hardware will provide our customers with a rapid and efficient method of screening process parameters, with minimal hands-on time," Eric Willimann, who is marketing manager of protein science at Tecan, said in a statement.

Further terms of the collaboration were not disclosed.
