NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – PerkinElmer said today that it will collaborate with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center on array comparative genomic hybridization.
As part of the alliance, PerkinElmer will train the center’s molecular genetic technology students in the aCGH technique, the Waltham, Mass.-based firm said. It also will support two student research projects for presentation at genomics and cytogenetics conferences aimed at increasing awareness of aCGH.
According to PerkinElmer, aCGH enables scientists to learn more cytogenetically about samples in less time than with traditional karotyping.
Further terms of the collaboration were not disclosed.
