University of Hawaii to Outfit New Facility With ABI Expression Analysis Platform

HONOLULU, Jan. 19 (GenomeWeb News) - A new research facility at the University of Hawaii's John A. Burns Medical School will outfit its labs with Applied Biosystems' Expression Analysis gene expression-analysis platform, GenomeWeb News has learned.


ABI "seemed interested in collaborating and working with us," Richard Lairton, an assistant professor of medicine at the school, told GenomeWeb News here last week. "We wanted a partnership and they seemed interested in collaborating in our research and supporting their platform with bioinformatics."


The EA platform will complement the school's ABI DNA-sequencing technology as well as the company's Taqman chemistries. The facility will open in September.


The facility will sit on a 10-acre lot on the Honoluluwaterfront. A 100,000-square-foot building will welcome students in the spring, and the research facilities will open in the late summer.
