NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Oxford Gene Technology will distribute SciGene's microarray sample processing equipment to researchers throughout the European Union, excluding Germany, OGT announced today.
SciGene's instruments provide cytogeneticists with the ability to automate their entire microarray workflow, from DNA labelling and purification, through hybridisation, to array washing and drying, the Oxford, UK-based firm said.
OGT sells the CytoSure family of high-resolution oligonucleotide arrays, as well as related sample prep technologies.
"The products from both companies are highly complementary and when used together offer cytogenetics customers a complete solution for their microarray-based methods," SciGene President and CEO Jim Stanchfield said in a statement.
Financial and other terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
