Engineering and biotech giant PerkinElmer Inc. said Monday it bought British X-ray technology company Dexela Limited.
The six-year-old Dexela, based in London, focuses on breast imaging, and sells flat panel detectors and 3-D image processing software to OEMs to package with their equipment. The company makes the high-speed CMOS X-ray detector, a mammography workstation and tomosynthesis reconstruction software.
The company also designs equipment for dental CT, cardiology and industrial testing.
KA Imaging’s Reveal 35C detector, currently available as an upgrade solution in the US and selected geographies, can now be sold in the European Union. The detector recently obtained the CE Mark. Contact us at email@example.com to book a free demo.
"Dexela has been a pioneer in the development of CMOS X-ray detection solutions and has achieved award-winning recognition in the imaging market for its design strengths and ease of manufacturability -- which are major advantages for OEM customers," Brian Giambattista, president of medical imaging with PerkinElmer, said in a statement.
Waltham, Mass.-based PerkinElmer said it has sold more than 15,000 flat-panel detectors for use in radiation oncology, human and veterinary radiography, airplane and car manufacturing and the petroleum industry. The company said it had $1.7 billion in sales last year.
