LC Sciences, NuGen Technologies, Hamilton Company

LC Sciences said recently that it has updated its catalog and custom microRNA arrays to reflect the content of miRBase version 12.0, the database of miRNA sequences hosted by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and the University of Manchester.
The Houston, Tex.-based company said that many of the new additions to miRBase 12.0 were identified using its µParaflo microarray platform.

NuGen Technologies and the Hamilton Company last week launched an automated, target-preparation approach for processing large sets of clinical samples for global gene expression analysis.
The approach combines NuGen's Ovation Systems with the Hamilton Microlab Starlet bench-top liquid handling system to increase throughput and improve workflow for small RNA samples commonly used in clinical signature and biomarker discovery.
Together, the two systems offer a full range of target preparation functions, including RNA amplification, purification, fragmentation, and labeling for gene expression analysis using Affymetrix GeneChip and other platforms, NuGen and Hamilton said.
