Genisphere, Agilent


Genisphere recently introduced its Array 900miRNA kits. According to the company, the microarray labeling kits are specifically designed for use with microRNAs, siRNAs, and other small RNA molecules such as nuclease fragments. The kits provide validated results from only 50 to 200 nanograms of microRNA-enriched samples, said the Hatfield, Pa.-based company.

Agilent has released a 32-bit version of its ChemStation instrument-control and data-management software (version B.01.01). The 32-bit architecture improves the software’s performance and stability. Agilent has also released revision B.03.02 of its ChemStore and ChemStation Plus Security Pack add-on software modules to provide support for the 32-bit ChemStation.
