NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Cell Line Genetics will sell Ambry Genetics' StemArray aCGH product and related services under an agreement announced today.
Madison, Wis.-based CLG will sell the StemArray products and services to its current customers and other companies and research institutions. CLG will offer the StemArray services through its own labs.
The StemArray uses array comparative genomic hybridization and covers more than 60 stem cell-associated genes and more than 200 cancer-related genes. It is specifically designed for stem cell scientists working with human embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells who require a higher-throughput technology to "detect genetic gains and losses that might be missed by lower resolution g-banded karyotyping," Ardy Arianpour, VP of business development for Aliso Viejo, Calif.-based Ambry Genetics, said in a statement.
"Cell Line Genetics has the depth and breadth of experience to help us shift sales of the Ambry StemArray into high gear," said Arianpour. "Our scientific expertise combined with Cell Line Genetics' strength in the karyotyping market should make for a strong synergistic partnership."
