Stanford Genomics Lab Installs BioTrove's Genotyping Platform

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Stanford University has purchased and installed a BioTrove genotyping platform to help it detect pathogens and conduct other projects, BioTrove said today.
 
The Stanford Genome Technology Lab will use the company’s OpenArray platform in SNP-genotyping and qPCR-based testing, and will try to develop other uses for the platform.
 
BioTrove said Stanford will use OpenArray plates in projects such as detecting Salmonella and other pathogens in food samples, and will explore developing “a method for solid-state synthesis.”
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
