Arrayjet Signs BioMicro as US Distributor

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Scottish microarray spotter developer Arrayjet said yesterday that BioMicro Systems of Salt Lake City will distribute its instruments in the US.
 
Arrayjet, based in Edinburgh, said that BioMicro will be its exclusive US distributor.
 
Graham Miller, Arrayjet’s CEO, said the distribution agreement “makes very good sense” because the companies “address the same application areas with highly complementary technologies.”
 
BioMicro sells the MAUI microarray hybridization system, while Arrayjet sells a line of microarray spotters that use more than 100 nozzles to produce microarrays of higher quality than pin-based spotters, the company said.
