Mergen to Manufacture Others Microarrays for Resale

NEW YORK, Jan. 24 (GenomeWeb News) - Mergen plans to manufacture microarrays for resale by other companies, the San Leandro, Calif.-based company said today.


Under a new service of original equipment manufacturing, Mergen will make custom DNA arrays for gene-expression analysis that other companies can resell under their own trademark or co-branded with Mergen. Mergen will also continue to sell its own pre-printed ExpressChip arrays.


Last week, the company said it purchased a license from Oxford Gene Technology that allows it to manufacture and sell microarrays for gene-expression studies.
