DNAVision Becomes First European Lab to Offer Services on Eppendorf DualChip Arrays

NEW YORK, April 19 (GenomeWeb News) - DNAVision has become a service provider for Eppendorf's DualChip microarrays, the company said earlier this month.

 

The deal makes DNAVision the first European lab to provide services for low- to medium-density microarray testing, and "completes very well our actual gene expression offer using high density microarray and real time PCR," Jean-François Laes, microarray unit manager at DNAVision, said in a statement.

 

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

 

The DualChip platform is used in the US Food and Drug Administration's MAQC (MicroArray Quality Control) project.
