In the article detailing the wind-down of the Affymetrix and Agilent Technologies microarray scanner sales and distribution agreement published in the Jan. 10, 2003 edition of BioArray News, Ned Barnholt, the CEO of Agilent, said the company had concluded the arrangement. Agilent told BioArray last week that Agilent and Affymetrix have a scanner supply agreement in place through February 2003, and Affymetrix chose not to extend the agreement beyond that. There has been no agreement to end the contract early and “Agilent is honoring our obligations of the contract,” the company said.
