Clarification: Oct 1, 2003


CLARIFICATION — In the BioArray News article, “Mike Hunkapiller, ABI, Stay Mum On Details of its Expression Array System,” published on Sept. 24, 2003, reported that Applied Biosystems President Mike Hunkapiller said the company’s patent, US Patent No. 6,573,089, “Method for using and making a fiber array,” referred to a next-generation microarray. In fact, in a later discussion, a company spokeswoman said Hunkapiller was referencing the company’s announced Expression Array System as next-generation microarray technology — not the technology described in US Patent No. 6,573,089. “Patent No. 6,573,089 is not for a next-generation microarray technology,” a company spokeswoman said in an e-mail message. BioArray News is pleased to make the clarification.
