Ocimum Biosolutions, Arrayjet

Ocimum Biosolutions this week launched Genowiz 4.0, a gene-expression data-analysis software package.
According to Ocimum, Genowiz allows researchers to organize experimental information, import data files quickly, work simultaneously with multiple experiments, import gene-annotation files, pre-process and normalize data, perform cluster analysis, classify and view gene information, perform functional classification, and track down intricate correlations in data by performing pathway analysis.
All analyses are saved in a database.

Arrayjet this week introduced Array Multiplier, a software module that adds capabilities and functionalities to its range of inkjet microarrayers.
According to Arrayjet, Array Multipier enables researchers to print multi-pad or mini-arrays using its Sprint and Marathon arrayers.
