NIDDK's Genomics Lab Will Now Offer Microarray Services to All of NIH

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — The Genomics Core Laboratory of the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive and Kidney Diseases today said it will begin providing its microarray services to all NIH institutes.
Genomics Core Director Margaret Cam said the extension is open-ended, unless the NIH decides to use other providers, and reflects greater fiscal responsiveness to budget demands within the NIH.  
The NIDDK Genomics Core currently uses Affymetrix and Codelink array platforms, and will offer its services to other NIH researchers for $400 per sample or $350 per sample for orders over 100 samples.
The service includes sample QC; automated target labeling; hybridization; preliminary statistical data analysis; storage and management of microarray data; online access to raw and processed data and GEO submission reports.
