IMC Selects Expression Analysis for Microarray Processing Services

NEW YORK, June 8 (GenomeWeb News) - IMC selected Expression Analysis for microarray processing services to support its clinical trial on drug addiction, Expression Analysis said today.

The Durham, NC-based company will isolate genomic samples and analyze those on both gene-expression and genotyping microarrays. The samples are from a clinical trial IMC is conducting.
 
The clinical trial is funded through an award received last year from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. The trial uses IMC's TeraGenomics, a data warehousing product to manage, analyze and share Affymetrix GeneChip microarray data to analyze the effectiveness of a compound used to treat methamphetamine addiction.
