New Product Watch: Sep 28, 2010


Silicon Kinetics this week launched its SKi Pro X1000, a biosensor instrument that supports label-free interaction analysis.

The San Diego-based firm said the new system supports experiments in multiwell plates and fine kinetic measurements in flow cells using the same reader instrument and surface chemistry.

With integrated robotics, the system also automates experiments in a 96-well plate, the firm claimed.

Genedata this week began selling its Expressionist Refiner Genome module, a software tool for analyzing sequencing and array data.

Relying on a genomic browser capable of visualizing terabytes of data, the module enables whole-genome analysis including transcriptome, DNA methylome, gene regulation, copy number variation, and SNP genotyping studies.

According to Genedata, the module can analyze data in such combinations as next-generation sequencing with microarray data, transcriptomics data with DNA methylation data, small RNA data with gene expression data, and CNV data with SNP data.
