Applied Imaging Partners with Sanger to Develop Gene Expression Applications for Software

NEW YORK, April 29 - Applied Imaging is to be the exclusive imaging partner for the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute's Atlas of Gene Expression project, the Santa Clara, Calif., company said today.


Under the agreement, Sanger will buy Applied Imaging's Ariol software for high-throughput analysis of tissue samples, which it will use for the Atlas of Gene Expression project. Applied will develop applications for the software that it will have commercial rights to sell.


The Atlas of Gene Expression project aims to globally map protein expression patterns in cells. The researchers will map expression in normal and disease states, and use recombinant antibodies for imaging and analysis, the Sanger Institute said.
