Advanced Array Technology, Genomic Solutions


Advanced Array Technology of Namur, Belgium, has introduced its Rat Hepatochip, a microarray with 51 genes chosen because of their involvement in toxicologically relevant gene pathways, as well as eight housekeeping genes to normalize the data, and three internal standards.

The company ( is actively seeking researchers to validate the arrays, according to company spokesman Silvain Margaine.


Genomic Solutions of Ann Arbor, Mich., has validated its GeneTAC HybStation, as well as its G3 Library Management System, LS IV, and UC4 instruments, for use in producing and processing protein chips.

“The ability to produce both protein and DNA microarrays extends the utility of our GeneTAC Biochip System and allows researchers to carry out proteomic and genomic research on a common platform,” said Michael Kane, vice president for research and development at Genomic Solutions.
