PerkinElmer to Sell Medical Imaging Unit

PerkinElmer said it has agreed to sell its Medical Imaging business, a supplier of flat panel X-ray detectors that serve as components for industrial, medical and dental X-ray imaging systems, to Varian Medical Systems (VAR).

Varian said the purchase will be added to the Varian Imaging Components business, which is slated to become an independent public company, Varex Imaging Corporation, through a previously announced separation expected to be completed in January.

The deal is expected to close in 1H17, after the planned separation of Varex from Varian and following receipt of required regulatory approvals. Varex will pay $276 million to acquire PerkinElmer’s Medical Imaging business.
