Gene Networks to Use AceGene DNA Chips for Basic Research

NEW YORK, June 14 (GenomeWeb News) - Gene Networks has signed an agreement to use AceGene oligo DNA chips in its basic research projects, German genomics company MWG Biotech said today.

 

AceGene was developed by Japanese firms HitachiSoft and DNA Chip Research using oligonucleotide and microarray technology provided by MWG. Under the deal with Gene Networks, HitachiSoft will supply the DNA chips.

 

MWG said that HitachiSoft expects to deliver several thousand AceGene chips to Gene Networks over the next two years.
