Alpha Innotech to Co-Market CapitalBio s Microarray Scanner

NEW YORK, July 21 (GenomeWeb News) - Alpha Innotech will co-market a laser-based microarray scanner made by Beijing-based CapitalBio for genomics and proteomics applications, the companies said today.


Alpha Innotech will have exclusive marketing rights for the scanner, called AlphaScan, in all markets except China, Japan, Korea, and Australia, the companies said.


"The slide-based AlphaScan will complement Alpha Innotech's proprietary NovaRay microarray imaging platform for high throughput microplate-based array screening," Haseeb Chaudhry, CEO of Alpha Innotech, said in a statement. The companies expect the product to compete well in price and performance, he said.
