CombiMatrix, Japanese Genomics Lab Pen Gene-Chip Collaboration

NEW YORK, May 30 - The Japanese subsidiary of CombiMatrix has struck a multi-year deal with the University of Tokyo.


Terms of the deal, announced late last month, call for the Genome Science Lab at the school's Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology to install a CombiMatrix gene chip synthesizer and buy an undisclosed number of blank chips.


The RCAST will us the chips to help it develop diagnostic microarray applications, drug leads, and identify target genes. The two groups said if the collaboration bears any products they will work out a way to commercialize them.
