Agilent and Dharmacon To Combine Microarrays, RNAi

NEW YORK, June 24 - Agilent Technologies and Dharmacon have begun a collaboration to combine Agilent's microarrays and Dharmacon's RNA interference for a measure of gene silencing, the companies said today.


Under the agreement, Dharmacon researchers will use RNAi to silence genes and then measure the effects of silencing with Agilent microarrays, and analyze the effect of the RNAi on gene expression with Rosetta Resolver software.


This initial collaboration aims at optimizing the companies' methods for use of their technologies together in research.
