New Product Watch: Feb 17, 2009


Oxford Gene Technology last week launched a Genomic DNA labeling kit optimized for its CytoSure family of high-resolution oligonucleotide arrays.

The kit contains Cy3 and Cy5 dyes for dual-color hybridizations, and uses an internally developed buffer formulation to allow more efficient use of reagents without loss of signal intensity, OGT said. The kit also includes nucleotide mix, random primers, enzymes, clean-up columns, and collection tubes for its protocol.
