Affymetrix to Market NimbleGen Custom Arrays: Jun 22, 2004

NEW YORK, June 22 (GenomeWeb News) -Affymetrix will commercialize NimbleGen's customized microarrays, NimbleGen said today.

 

Under the agreement, Affymetrix will offer its customers made-to-order versions of the NimbleExpress array for use on the Affymetrix GeneChip instrument systems. Customers will be required to place a minimum order of 10 arrays, and there will be a four-week lead time on orders, NimbleGen said.

 

The NimbleExpress array is made using a maskless photolithography, enabling greater flexibility in design than the photolithography masks on traditional Affymetrix arrays.

 

The arrays can interrogate up to 12,000 transcripts for gene expression experiments, and can also be used for genome tiling and other experiments, NimbleGen said.

 

NimbleGen is based in Madison, Wis.
