SpectruMedix and Capital Genomix to Couple, Co-Market Products for Gene-Expression Analysis

NEW YORK, May 4 (GenomeWeb News) - SpectruMedix of State College, Pa., and Capital Genomix of Gaithersburg, Md., will market and distribute Capital's gene expression-analysis platform for capillary electrophoresis-based applications, the companies said today.


The two partners plan to couple Capital's GeneSystem320, which allows researchers to detect gene transcripts at very low levels, with SpetruMedix's Reveal Genetic Analysis system, which uses high-throughput capillary electrophoresis for genetic analyses. They intend to release a new product early in the third quarter.
