Affymetrix to Distribute Biotique's Gene Expression Analysis Software

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Affymetrix will distribute Biotique’s gene expression analysis software directly to its microarray customers under a new agreement, Biotique said today.
 
Biotique’s XRAY software functions as an add-in for Microsoft Excel, and requires “little or no software specific training” for use, the Reno, Nev.-based company said.
 
"Customer feedback shows that this is an intuitive and powerful way in which to analyze Affymetrix array data, offering a higher degree of flexibility and ease-of-use,” Greg Fisher, Affymetrix’s associate director of product marketing, said in a statement.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
