Turner BioSystems Combines with Promega to Expand Integrated Systems Offerings
MADISON, WISCONSIN (August 3, 2009)
Promega Corporation announces the recent purchase of Turner BioSystems Inc. to grow their mutual interest in offering high quality integrated systems (optimized instrument with reagents) to life scientists in research, drug discovery and clinical diagnostics. This latest Promega expansion continues the existing synergies between the two companies. Together they have delivered integrated bioluminescent systems with Turner’s luminometers and world-class bioluminescent technologies from Promega.
"This is a natural next move for Turner," explains Turner President Mike Mokelke. "Over the years, innovating with Promega has created productive instrument/reagent systems that scientists highly value. Both companies are eager to optimize this total systems approach for the bench top."
"The Turner quality and our long standing relationship make this a great enhancement for all of our customers," says Promega CEO Bill Linton. "Scientists value quality integrated systems because it frees them up to focus on the other demands in their lab. This purchase allows us to offer these systems for more applications."
Turner and Promega have worked together in offering the Glomax® Luminometer line that is optimized for Promega bioluminescent assays. Turner offers microplate and single tube reader luminometers, fluorometers, photometers and multimode instruments for life science labs. Turner will continue its operations out of Sunnyvale, CA.
