Carterra, Inc. the world leader in label-free high throughput antibody screening and characterization, today announced that the company has signed an exclusive Asia-Pacific and Oceania region distribution agreement with PerkinElmer, Inc. a global leader committed to innovating for a healthier world. With the agreement, PerkinElmer will market, sell, and service Carterra’s flagship LSA high-throughput surface plasmon resonance (SPR) platform and software used for accelerating the discovery of therapeutic antibodies.
