NEW YORK, May 20 (GenomeWeb News) - Affymetrix will market and distribute genotyping products from ParAllele Bioscience for use with Affy's microarrays, the companies said yesterday.


Under the non-exclusive agreement, ParAllele will design assays and manufacture its MegAllele genotyping reagent kits and software, which Affymetrix will market for use with its GeneChip Tag arrays and instruments.


Initially, the genotyping kits, to be formally launched in July, will include custom panels of 3,000 to 5,000 SNPs and standard panels of up to 10,000 pre-selected SNPs. Over time, the companies plan to add additional products.
