Rosetta Biosoftware has launched version 5.0 of the Rosetta Resolver gene expression data analysis system. New features include additional customization capabilities, a similarity search feature, and productivity enhancements.

Sirs-Lab has launched the Lab-Arraytor 60-inflammation biochip for gene expression studies. The chip contains 780 inflammation-specific genes, and is available with an introductory discount of 15 percent, valid until the end of the year.

BioTrove has launched the OpenArray Transcript Analysis system for high-density, quantitative PCR analyses. The new product allows researchers to study 9,000 transcripts simultaneously in about two hours.

Toray of Tokyo, has developed a new DNA chip that it claims is capable of up to 100 times the detection sensitivity of conventional DNA chips. The firm is considering a production plan for the chips this year.

Genetix has launched a new hybrid bed option to complement its medium-throughput QArray2 microarray platform. According to the firm, the new option allows users to array either into 16 microtiter plates or onto 32 conventional glass slides on the same instrument.

Gentel BioSurfaces has launched the PathT Protein Microarray Kit for biomarker discovery and protein profiling.

Honeywell introduced Honeywell Burdick & Jackson solvents, reagents and purification blends for solution and solid-phase peptide synthesis.
