Agilent to Distribute ExonHit s Alternative Splicing Microarrays

NEW YORK, Sept. 1 (GenomeWeb News) - Agilent Technologies will distribute alternative splicing microarrays from ExonHit Therapeutics, the companies said today.

 

Under the agreement, Agilent will directly sell ExonHit's SpliceArrays to customers, who will also purchase a license agreement from ExonHit, with license fees proportional to the number of arrays bought.

 

The arrays' probe design allows users to detect both the reference and alternatively spliced forms of targeted genes on Agilent's microarray platform.

 

The two companies have been collaborating on the arrays since last November. So far, they had only been available through ExonHit's SpliceArray Service, which was announced in February.
