Transgenomic to Market, Sell Nanogen s NanoChip Platform in Parts of Europe

NEW YORK, Jan. 15 (GenomeWeb News) - Transgenomic will market and sell Nanogen's NanoChip molecular biology workstation in selected Western European countries, the companies said today.

 

The reason, according to both companies, is that the NanoChip platform "complements" the ability of Transgenomic's WAVE system to scan for unknown gene mutations, and that Transgenomic "has a large, well-established European customer base."

 

"This agreement is part of a strategy of providing total complementary solutions for the genetic research and clinical laboratory markets in Europe," said Collin D'Silva, Transgenomic's CEO.
