RZPD Expands NimbleGen Array Services Offering to Include Affy IP


NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - The German Resource Center for Genome Research (RZPD), based in Berlin, said it has expanded an agreement with NimbleGen to cover Affymetrix’ microarray patents in Germany and Austria.
NimbleGen signed an agreement with Affymetrix in October that gave it non-exclusive, worldwide rights for the manufacture, use, and sale of nucleic acid microarrays.
Under the new agreement, RZPD will be able to offer technology covered by this IP to its customers as part of its services offering.
RZPD has been a distributor for NimbleGen in Germany and Austria for three years. It offers services such as ChIP-chp, comparative genomic hybridization, and gene expression analysis based on the NimbleGen platform.
