Tecan to Integrate BioDiscovery s Array Software

NEW YORK, June 28 (GenomeWeb News) - Tecan and BioDiscovery have formed a collaboration in which BioDiscovery's GeneDirector microarray data-management software will be integrated with data from Tecan's HS series of automated hybridization stations, BioDiscovery said today.

 

Users will be able to capture, store, and relate information about a particular microarray hybridization experiment run on Tecan's HS instruments to arrays stored in BioDiscovery's GeneDirector database. The information can be used for QC purposes and to correct for process biases, BioDiscovery said.

 

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
