Roche Certifies ImaGenes for CGH Service

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – ImaGenes has received certification from Roche NimbleGen to provide services using the firm's comparative genomic hybridization array workflow from its headquarters in Berlin, Roche said today.

Roche noted that over the past six months ImaGenes has also been certified to offer its DNA methylation analysis and its ChIP-chip services, and that it is the first certified CGH provider in Europe.

As a Roche Certified Service Provider, ImaGenes now will offer CGH services using NimbleGen's MS 200 Microarray Scanner, as well as Roche's arrays, reagents, and software.

The CGH service enables the detection of chromosomal abnormalities, copy number variations, and specific break-points at high resolution.
