Fox show Fringe will have a Massachusetts touch -
(Boston Business Journal 9/9/08)
Bay State life sciences company Millipore Corp. has gone Hollywood, and joined the cast of new Fox TV show "Fringe."
Billerica, Mass.-based Millipore (NYSE: MIL) provided some of its laboratory products for the show to make the background of some of the scenes more realistic. The company provides services and sells technology and tools for bioscience research and biopharmaceutical manufacturing.
Products that will be on the show include water purification, protein detection and air testing systems, according to an e-mail to company employees.
Fringe, which is about FBI agents and scientists who investigate freaky happenings, debuts Tuesday night at 8 p.m. Its producer is J.J. Abrams, co-creator of the ABC show "Lost."Mark Hollmer - Boston Business Journal
