HTG to Analyze Gene Expression for Takeda Pharmaceutical

NEW YORK, Sept. 22 (GenomeWeb News) - HTG will provide gene expression analysis services to Takeda Pharmaceutical of Japan, HTG said today.

 

Under the agreement, Tucson, Ariz.-based HTG will use its ArrayPlate technology to analyze samples provided by Takeda, which is based in Osaka.

 

HTG's ArrayPlate contains a Universal Array in each well of a 96-well microplate. The arrays can be programmed using HTG's reagents for the simultaneous measurement of DNA and RNA from the same sample. The assays rely on a quantitative nuclease protection assay.
