NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Roche NimbleGen said today that it has certified Berlin-based genomics services company ImaGenes to offer its DNA Methylation Analysis arrays.
ImaGenes passed the certification to become a Certified Service Provider for the DNA Methylation Analysis workflow, which is used in identifying novel genetic markers that can be used in diagnostic and prognostic development programs.
In December 2009, Roche certified ImaGenes to offer NimbleGen microarrays for chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP-chip) services.
This certification makes ImaGenes the first NimbleGen service provider in Europe with multiple certifications, Roche said.
"We are convinced that ImaGenes will further drive the penetration of Roche NimbleGen's innovative products in the functional genomics market," Roche NimbleGen VP of Marketing Andreas Görtz said in a statement.
