Agilent and ExonHit Partner to Develop Microarray for Splice Variants

NEW YORK, Nov. 15 (GenomeWeb News) - Agilent Technologies will combine its microarray platform with ExonHit's alternative RNA splicing in an attempt to develop an array technology that can monitor the expression of splice variants, the companies said today.


The companies presented results from an experimental splicing array of G-protein coupled receptors, which was designed by ExonHit and produced by Agilent, at the Splicing 2004 meeting, held in September in Bethesda, Md.


That array was bale to detect multiple isoforms of several genes, and "showed good reproducibility and specificity," the companies said in a statement today. Agilent and ExonHit "are expected to work with early test sites to generate additional experimental results," the firms said.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
