Oxford Gene Technology Appointed Agilent Certified Service Provider

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Agilent Technologies has appointed Oxford Gene Technology as a certified service provider for its microarray products in Europe, the firms announced today.
Oxford, UK-based OGT said it gained certification after completing "several successful projects," such as transcription profiling of sequenced microorganisms and array-based comparative genomic hybridization experiments.
In early 2007, the firms inked an agreement that gave OGT access to Agilent’s microarray platform and made Agilent an OEM supplier of OGT-designed microarrays.
OGT was founded in 1995 to protect the patent estate of microarray inventor Sir Edwin Southern. In 2004, it began developing customized arrays for researchers around the world.
