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 also includes nucleotide mix, random primers, enzymes, clean-up columns, and collection tubes for its protocol.
