The acquisition complements and expands PerkinElmer’s current amorphous silicon (a-Si) based Flat Panel X-ray Detectors (FPD) technology in key areas including surgery, dental, cardiology and mammography, as well as non-destructive testing (NDT).

With the addition of the CMOS technology to the PerkinElmer’s imaging portfolio, customers will now be able to choose seamlessly between two complementary Flat Panel X-ray Detector technologies to optimize their system performance and meet their specific application needs. In addition to its CMOS X-ray detection units, Dexela technologies and services include its Dexela Mammography Workstation, the DexView Image Processing Software, its 3D Reconstruction Engine Software, and Consulting and Implementation Services.
