Hybrigenics Adopts Millipore s Montage Kits in Y2H Services

NEW YORK, June 11 (GenomeWeb News) - Paris-based Hybrigenics announced on Monday that it is using Montage PCRμ384 and SEQ384 kits from Billerica, Mass.-based Millipore as part of its protein interaction mapping services. The kits use size exclusion as part of a DNA sample preparation method, and will be used to improve the automation process for its high-throughput yeast-2-hybrid assays, according to Hybrigenics.

 

"The integration of Millipore's Montage PCRμ384 and SEQ384 kits has resulted in better quality and an increase in the percentage of conclusive sequences that exceeded our expectations," Catherine Borg-Capra, director of industrial operation at Hybrigenics, said in a statement.
