Tm Biosciences to Supply CF, Ashkenazi Assays to U. of Miami Research Center

NEW YORK, July 27 (GenomeWeb News) - Tm Bioscience will supply the University of Miami with reagents for the school's cystic fibrosis and Ashkenazi Jewish panel gene assays, the company said today.

 

The university's JohnT.Macdonald Foundation Center for Medical Genetics will use Tm's Tag-It ASR(x) reagents in its cystic fibrosis gene assay, which detects multiple mutations associated with CF, and in its Ashkenazi Jewish panel gene assay, which detects gene mutations associated with Tay-Sachs disease, Canavan disease, familial dysautonomia, Gaucher disease, Bloom syndrome, Fanconi anemia, Neimann-Pick disease, and mucolipidosis type IV.
