OriGene, Cytomyx Partner on Gene Expression Biomarker Validation

NEW YORK, Oct. 17 (GenomeWeb News) - OriGene Technologies and Cytomyx Holdings have signed an agreement to co-develop tools to profile gene expression and validate biomarkers in human cancers, the companies said today.


Under the terms of the agreement, Cytomyx will supply hundreds of characterized RNA samples from several major cancers. OriGene will use these samples to update its Rapid-Scan Gene Expression Panel product line, which will enable researchers to determine linkages between gene expression and tumor occurrence and development, the companies said.


Cytomyx will also develop tissue microarrays to further investigate these linkages at the protein expression level using immunohistochemistry.
