- PerkinElmer, Corning Partner
PerkinElmer and Corning will partner to develop next-generation detection technologies for life sciences research, the businesses announced today. The agreement brings together Corning’s optical label-free detection technology with PerkinElmer’s multilabel detection systems to provide drug discovery and life science researchers with deeper insights into biomolecular and cellular interactions, the companies said. Life and analytical sciences and optoelectronics company PerkinElmer is based in Waltham, Mass.; specialty glass and ceramics maker Corning has its headquarters in Corning, N.Y.
- A noncrystalline, inorganic mixture of various metallic oxides fused by heating with glassifiers such as silica, or boric or phosphoric oxides. Common window or bottle glass is a mixture of soda, lime and sand, melted and cast, rolled or blown to shape. Most glasses are transparent in the visible spectrum and up to about 2.5 µm in the infrared, but some are opaque such as natural obsidian; these are, nevertheless, useful as mirror blanks. Traces of some elements such as cobalt, copper and...
- Pertaining to optics and the phenomena of light.
- A sub-field of photonics that pertains to an electronic device that responds to optical power, emits or modifies optical radiation, or utilizes optical radiation for its internal operation. Any device that functions as an electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical transducer. Electro-optic often is used erroneously as a synonym.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
