US Army Purchases HTS Flexchip System

NEW YORK, Oct. 13 (GenomeWeb News) - The US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases has purchased HTS Biosystems' Flexchip Kinetic Analysis System and related Affinity Chips, HTS said today.


USAMRIID will use the array platform in its research into responding to bioterrorism threats, according to HTS. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.


The Flexchip system is a surface plasmon resonance array platform, which was previously sold by Applied Biosystems as the 8500 Affinity Chip Analyzer. HTS took over marketing of the platform last week, after ABI decided it didn't fit with their business strategy going forward.
