NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – PerkinElmer announced on Monday that it has acquired electronic lab notebook developer Labtronics for an undisclosed amount.
PerkinElmer said that the acquisition extends its electronic lab notebook and data integration software offerings into labs conducting strict routine procedures, such as regulated and non-regulated QA/QC, late-stage product or method development, and environmental and food testing.
The deal builds on PerkinElmer's recent acquisitions of CambridgeSoft and ArtusLabs, both of which expanded the firm's informatics capabilities. Two weeks ago, PerkinElmer also announced it had acquired genetic analysis software firm Geospiza.
Dusty Tenney, president of analytical sciences and laboratory services for PerkinElmer, said that the acquisition enhances the firm's "strategic focus on enterprise-wide knowledge sharing and access." He added that the acquired products also present "strong synergies" with its OneSource Laboratory Services portfolio.
