Andre Marion, a founder of Applied Biosystems, has been appointed to the board of Singulex, the company said this week. Marion served as CEO of ABI from 1986 to 1993 and was chairman of its board from 1987 to 1993. After the company merged with Perkin-Elmer, he stayed on as vice president of PE and president of ABI until 1995. The current PerkinElmer is a different company from the Perkin-Elmer of which ABI was part. That company changed its name to Applera in 2000.
