Expression Analysis Adopts NuGEN's Amplification Tech for Certain GeneChip Analysis

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Affymetrix service provider Expression Analysis yesterday said it has adopted NuGEN Technologies' Ovation product line for amplifying, fragmenting, and labeling RNA samples for GeneChip array analysis.
"We hope to migrate all of our clients who require microarray testing with limited RNA specimens to this service,” Tom Goralski, senior director of laboratory operations at Expression Analysis, said in a statement. “We will continue to evaluate the Ovation system for potential use with whole blood samples."
Expression Analysis also said it will begin validating NuGEN’s new WT-Ovation Pico RNA amplification system for ultra-small and/or degraded specimens in early October.
"We believe this product may be extremely useful in tumor-based oncology applications," continued Goralski said.
Financial terms of the deals were not disclosed.
