Beckman Coulter Upgrades DNAPrint Genotyping Platform

NEW YORK, July 12 (GenomeWeb News) - Beckman Coulter has upgraded DNAPrint's SNPstream genotyping instrument from 12-plex to 48-plex, DNAPrint said today.

 

The upgrade allows for an approximate four-fold increase in genotyping throughput, DNAPrint said. The upgrade in capability does not require labor increases; therefore, DNAPrint expects to see a significant reduction in price per genotype, it said.

 

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
