                             RULE 12B-25 (B) AND (C)

     If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or
expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the
following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate.)

            (a) The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this
                form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or

            (b) The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report
                on Form 10-K, 20-F, 11-K or Form N-SAR, or portion thereof
[X]             will be filed on or before the 15th calendar day following the
                prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or
                transition report on Form 10-Q, or portion thereof will be filed

            (c) The accountant's statement or other exhibit required by Rule

                                    PART III

     State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Form 10-K, 11-K, 20-F,
10-Q, N-SAR or the transition report portion thereof could not be filed within
the prescribed time period. (Attach extra sheets if needed.)

     On June 18, 2002, the PerkinElmer, Inc. Savings Plan (the "Registrant")
dismissed Arthur Andersen LLP ("Andersen") as its independent public
accountants. On June 20, 2002, the Registrant engaged Deloitte & Touche LLP,
effective as of June 20, 2002, to serve as its independent public accountants
for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2002. In prior years, representatives of
Andersen have assisted the Registrant in preparing and reviewing the financial
statements required to be filed with the Registrant's Annual Report on Form
11-K. Due to the change in independent public accountants, the process of
preparing and reviewing the necessary financial statements has been delayed. Due
to the reasons described above, the Registrant could not have timely filed its
Annual Report on Form 11-K without unreasonable effort or expense.

                                     PART IV
                                OTHER INFORMATION

     (1)  Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this
          notification: Terrance L. Carlson, Senior Vice President, General
          Counsel and Clerk of PerkinElmer, Inc., (781) 237-5100.

     (2)  Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of
          the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment
          Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter
          period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been
          filed? If the answer is no, identify report(s).

                                                    [X]  Yes           [ ]    No

     (3)  Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations
          from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be
          reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject
          report or portion thereof?

                                                    [ ]  Yes           [ ]    No

     If so: attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively
and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable
estimate of the results cannot be made.

     Not applicable, because Form 11-K does not require the inclusion of results
of operations or earnings statements.
