PerkinElmer has entered into a joint technology development and marketing agreement with LinaTech, a manufacturer of medical devices and software for treating cancer with radiotherapy, to develop, implement, market and distribute imaging technologies for the treatment of certain types of cancer.
The products to be developed include cost-effective imaging solutions that allow customers to upgrade their legacy film-based radiotherapy systems, and also imaging subsystems for sales to radiotherapy system manufacturers.
PerkinElmer Medical Imaging president Brian Giambattista said that the company is pleased to be working with LinaTech, with its radiotherapy solutions and systems.
“We look forward to very compelling outcomes from our development project, as we seek to create new technologies for the benefit of cancer patients, by giving doctors and hospitals more imaging options,” Giambattista said.
LinaTech president Jonathan Yao said that they are delighted to collaborate with a provider of PerkinElmer’s reputation for quality product development, along with unmatched worldwide reach in imaging.
“We feel that both companies will strongly complement each other as we work toward better solutions for oncology treatment,” Yao said.
