Motorola Ships Bioarray System to Mayo Clinic

NEW YORK, Dec 13 - Motorola said Wednesday it had reached an agreement to ship its CodeLink Bioarray System to the Mayo Clinic.

" Important collaborations like this are an integral part of Motorola's strategy to broadly place our CodeLink system in the laboratories of pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and academic researchers," Nicholas Naclerio, vice president and general manager of Motorola's biochip systems business unit, said in a statement.

" Our approach is to work with those institutions and companies that will enhance Motorola's technology development," Naclerio said.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Motorola recently signed its first commercial agreement for Compugen's biochip design services.

CodeLink, which consists of bioarrays, instrumentation, reagents, and software, is designed to reduce bottlenecks in the research process. Motorola said it expects CodeLink to be able to simultaneously monitor the activity of thousands of genes in a tissue sample.
