Molecular Genomics Named Agilent CSP in Singapore Region

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Agilent Technologies today announced that Molecular Genomics has become its first Certified Service Provider for microarray-based genomics analysis in Southeast Asia.

With the designation, the company will provide microarray services using Agilent's CGH/SNP microarrays, gene expression, and microRNA products.

Molecular Genomics was spun out of Genomax Technologies earlier this year and provides genomics contract research services to life science institutes and biotechnology companies in Singapore and the region.

In a statement, Jeffrey Wee, chief technology officer for Molecular Genomics, said that the Agilent microarray platform will be one of the core genomics services provided by the firm.
