Cogenics to Use NuGen's Ovation Line for Affy-based Array Services

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - NuGen Technologies said today that Cogenics will use its Ovation Systems line of RNA amplification and labeling products for use in genome services based on Affymetrix GeneChip expression arrays.
 
NuGen said the Ovation products are designed for gene expression profiling and signature discovery projects using samples from blood, fresh tissue biopsies, laser-capture microdissected cells, sorted cells, and formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue.
 
Cogenics, a subsidiary of Clinical Data, will use three of the Ovation products, including the Whole Blood Solution, the WT-Ovation Pico System and the WT-Ovation FFPE System, for target preparation with Affy arrays.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
