Invitrogen, SuperArray Bioscience


Invitrogen will launch a proteome microarray product at BIO 2004 in San Francisco this week, the company announced said. In addition, the company will detail plans for developing subsets of the human proteome with proteins grouped by family and function.

SuperArray Bioscience last week launched its RT(2) Real-Time gene expression assay kits for every gene in the human, mouse, and rat genomes. These quantitative gene expression assays are intended for genome-wide disease characterization, pathway elucidation, functional studies, and in the basic research of human disease, the company said in a statement. Additionally, the kits can be applied for the independent verification of DNA microarray data.

Each kit includes gene-specific PCR primers designed with proprietary, experimentally verified design algorithms. The PCR primers are optimized for real-time PCR and SYBR Green detection. Also included is a specially optimized master mix for real-time PCR.
