News Dec 05, 2008
PerkinElmer, Inc. has announced the acquisition of Arnel Inc. The acquisition is an important strategic initiative to expand PerkinElmer’s chromatography portfolio and strengthen its application-focused expertise to best serve the biofuels and hydrocarbon processing industries, the company announces.
This acquisition is a natural extension of PerkinElmer’s and Arnel’s 18 year relationship during which Arnel served as PerkinElmer’s exclusive supplier of gas sampling valve solutions.
With the completion of this transaction, PerkinElmer expects to accelerate its development and expand its portfolio of application-focused measurement systems tailored for the biofuels, food and beverage, industrial hygiene, and hydrocarbon processing markets.
Through this acquisition, PerkinElmer continues its ability to provide standard and custom petroleum tailored solutions based upon PerkinElmer’s gas chromatography platform. These analyzers include the widest range of refinery/light hydrocarbon gas analyzers and natural gas analyzers in the industry.
Researchers have developed an artificial enzymatic pathway for synthesizing isoprenoids, or terpenes, in E. coli. This shorter, more efficient, cost-effective and customizable pathway transforms E. coli into a factory that can produce terpenes for use in everything from cancer drugs to biofuels.READ MORE
