PerkinElmer adds Raman to molecular spectroscopy product line.

Boston, MA 9/5/06; London, UK 9/6/06--PerkinElmer has acquired Avalon Instruments for an undisclosed amount. Based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Avalon supplies benchtop dispersive Raman spectrometers. Optical component manufacturer Andor Technology, which held a 39% stake in Andor, announced that it sold its share to PerkinElmer for 385,000 [euro] ($731,600) and will supply PerkinElmer with light detection modules for Avalon products.

Avalon was spun out from Andor in 2000. The acquisition adds Raman, the fastest growing molecular spectroscopy technique to PerkinElmer's molecular spectroscopy product line. Raman complements PerkinElmer's infrared (IR) and near infrared (NIR) businesses and enables it to compete with other IR and NIR vendors that have developed or acquired Raman technology.
