US EPA Will Use Amersham s CodeLink Arrays to Study Aquatic Toxicity

NEW YORK, Oct. 23 (GenomeWeb News) - The US Environmental Protection Agency will use Amersham Biosciences' CodeLink microarrays to help it find biomarkers linked to aquatic toxicity, Amersham said today.

 

The agency will provide gene sequences from the fathead minnow -- a standard animal model for aquatic toxicology studies -- and Amersham will use these sequences to create microarrays. The EPA will then screen selected minnow genes to identify contaminants in water.
