SciGene, Baylor Start Microarray Collaboration to Improve BeadChip Processing

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — SciGene today said it will collaborate with researchers at Baylor University’s Immunology Research Institute to develop “an efficient system” for processing Illumina’s BeadChip microarrays.
 
Specifically, the companies plan to develop “methods and instrumentation” that use SciGene's automation technology.
 
SciGene provides tools designed to reduce errors in microarray data. The Baylor institute is focused on the use of gene-expression microarrays to study genome-wide transcriptional changes in human blood.
