2nd October 2007

Applied Biosystems yesterday announced the signing of an exclusive collaboration and license agreement with Olink Bioscience.

The deal will result in the commercialisation of Olink’s proximity ligation assay (PLA) technology as Applied Biosystems will co-develop the equipment for applications in the science research market such as characterisation of complex biological processes, reports the firm.
