Expression Analysis Moves Into Larger Digs; Will Install New Tools From Illumina, ABI, Luminex

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Expression Analysis has relocated its lab to a larger facility in Durham, NC, the company said today.
 
The firm, which uses Affymetrix’ GeneChip to provide microarray services for clinical trials, said the new space is triple the size of its previous lab.
 
Expression Analysis said it needed new space because over the past year it tripled its capacity of its gene-expression and genotyping services and recently doubled its lab and informatics staff.
 
The extra space will allow the company to install new hardware for use in high-throughput testing using Affy’s and other platforms, including those from Illumina, Luminex, and Applied Biosystems.
