Reaction Biology Gets $1.8M from NHGRI for HTS Microarray Technology

NEW YORK, March 13 (GenomeWeb News) - The National Institutes of Health has awarded Reaction Biology $1.8 million over four years for development of its microarray-based high throughput screening technology, the company said today.

 

The grant is one of eight awarded under RFA RM-04-020, which the National Human Genome Research Institute issued in July 2004 as part of the Molecular Libraries and Imaging Initiative of the NIH Roadmap.

 

Reaction Biology said that it is the only private corporation to receive an award under the RFA. Other recipients include the University of Texas, the University of Chicago, Harvard University, the University of Houston, the Burnham Institute, UT Battelle, and the University of California, Davis.

 

Reaction Biology said that the grant will support further development of its spray deposition technology for high-throughput screening reaction activation, as well as the development of enhanced microarray printing technology for use in its DiscoveryDot HTS system.
