Chemicon International, Insightful


Chemicon International of Temecula, Calif., has launched its ATA100 Advanced Tissue Arrayer. The instrument, built in collaboration with Advanced EDM Automation, is designed to build custom tissue microarrays from paraffin blocks containing multiple tissue samples. It contains a microscope, an illuminated reference slide stage, a donor and a recipient block station.

Statistics company Insightful of Seattle has released Insightful ArrayAnalyzer, a microarray data analysis tool. Based on S-PLUS and StatServer, ArrayAnalyzer uses a mapped workflow interface that guides the user through the analysis process, including data uploading, normalization, differential expression testing, and annotation. It is compatible both with Affymetrix and cDNA arrays and takes advantage of S-PLUS’s Web Graphlets to show tabular and graphical summaries of differentially expressed genes.
