Moscow's Engelhardt Institute Spin-Off Outfitted With Two New QArray2 Systems From Genetix

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Moscow’s Engelhardt Institute of Molecular Biology has purchased two additional QArray2 microarrayers from Genetix for an undisclosed amount, Genetix said.
 
The institute already has four of the microarrayers, which it uses to manufacture prototype biochips for use in medical diagnostic labs.
 
The newly bought systems will be used in a spin-off company, to be called BIOCHIP-IMB, which will operate within the institute, said Steve Hawkins, a business manager at Genetix. These microarrayers will be used for large-scale biochip manufacturing.
