CT OKs PerkinElmer’s Branford genome lab

Connecticut has licensed a Branford genetic-sequencing lab run by PerkinElmer Corp., of Waltham, Mass.

PerkinElmer said license No. CL0685 will enable it to expand offerings of its DNA-sequencing and other services to treatment investigators for certain cancers and other diseases whose genetic roots pass from parent to offspring.

"Next Generation Sequencing has the potential to provide genomic information to better understand disease at the molecular level and to ultimately help improve patient care," said Richard Begley, president of emerging technologies at PerkinElmer.
