MD Anderson to Use Sequenom Systems for Epigenomic and Genotyping Research

NEW YORK, Feb. 6 (GenomeWeb News) - The MD Anderson Kleberg Center for Molecular Markers at the University of Texas has purchased Sequenom's MassArray genetic analysis system and iPlex assay, Sequenom said today.


The technology will be used for the center's molecular marker research and individualized cancer case initiatives, according to a statement. Researchers at the center will use the systems to identify individuals at high risk for developing specific types of cancer, develop screeing approaches for early diagnosis of cancer, and "tailor therapy to the genetic make-up of each patient."
