NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – PerkinElmer reduced its number of employees by 72 as part of a restructuring plan during its recently completed second quarter, the company disclosed this week.
German molecular diagnostics firm Epigenomics today reported that its first-half revenues increased 1 percent year over year, and the firm is implementing a restructuring that will include cutting its staff by nearly half.
The firm's lab services revenues were hurt by lower sample volume, but were partially offset by a higher average price per sample. Celera also announced a restructuring program intended to cut costs by $10 million next year.
The cost-cutting moves, which are expected to reduce Rosetta's annual operating costs by $4 million, come less than a month after the Israeli firm unveiled two new microRNA-based tests it has under development and said that it would be establishing its own sales force to market them and certain other of its next-generation products.
