NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Micron Products will make components for Osmetech’s Opti Tube and Opti Gene product lines for three years, Micron parent company Arrhythmia Research Technology said today.
Opti Tubes are made to replace glass capillaries that are used in the Roche LightCycler, ART said. The OptiGene is an instrument “designed to enable simple and complex molecular diagnostic tests” in small- to medium-sized hospitals.
The Opti Tube and Opti Gene are products of Osmetech’s molecular diagnostics Division. They were manufactured by Micron’s New England Molders division.
