Genpathway last week launched its Methylated DNA IP-on-Chip assays using Affymetrix GeneChip Tiling Arrays.
The assays include the Methylated DNA IP-on-Chip/Tiling assay, a Genome-wide assay using whole-genome tiling arrays; the Methylated DNA IP-on-Chip/Promoter assay for detection of methylated DNA in promoter regions; and the Methylated DNA Query assay for gene-by-gene analysis based on quantitative PCR.
According to Genpathway, the methylation assays, as well as analysis and services, will target pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and academic researchers. The assays could be used in biomarker discovery, drug target identification and validation, compound screening, and patient diagnosis and screening, the company said.
