NIMGenetics Becomes Agilent's First CSP in Spain

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Agilent Technologies today said that it has appointed Spanish genetics firm NIMGenetics as a Certified Service Provider for its SurePrint comparative genomic hybridization and CGH/SNP microarrays.

Included in the workflow are Agilent's CGH and CGH/SNP microarrays; sample labeling; hybridization; scanning on the Agilent DNA microarray scanner; data analysis using GeneSpring and/or the company's Genomic Workbench software; and sample quality control using Agilent's 2100 Bioanalyzer.
