NEW YORK, April 26, 2001 - PerkinElmer has introduced a new SNP detection method that uses fluorescence polarization, the company said Thursday.
This company’s new AcycloPrime FP SNP Detection System is a microplate-based assay that does not require washing or separation. The detection system is designed for use with PerkinElmer’s Victor2V fluorescence detection instrument, or other fluorescence detection readers.
"This is an exciting step forward in our SNP detection program," said Patrik Dahlen, president of PerkinElmer Life Sciences, in a statement. "This system is part of our ongoing program to develop complete solutions for this growing market."
The company will make two different AcycloPrime kits available during this quarter, and will introduce other kits during the year.The company was not immediately available for further details on these kits.
