Jubilant Biosys, Schott Nexterion

Premium

Indian bioinformatics firm Jubilant Biosys announced that it has in-cluded Agilent’s Microarray 60mer Probe Identifiers in its PathArt signaling and metabolic pathways database.

PathArt contains over 900 signaling and metabolic pathways and covers nine physiologies and 17 disease states. According to the firm, users of the Agilent microarrays will be able to map and add biological relevance to the results of their experiments on PathArt.


Schott Nexterion, based in Duryea, Penn., has launched the Nexterion Slide MPX, a range of slides that allows the simultaneous conduction of multiple microarray experiments on a single slide. The product is comprised of coated glass substrates that are partitioned into individual wells and are delivered together with superstructures and sealing strips to avoid cross-contamination and excessive evaporation during hybridization. It is available in 16-well and 48-well formats.
