ServiceXS Will Use Affy Arrays to Study Nutrigenomics for NuGo

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Dutch genomics and proteomics outsourcing company ServiceXS will use microarrays designed by the European Nutrigenomics Organization and manufactured by Affymetrix to study nutrition and genomics for NuGo, ServiceXS said today.
 
ServiceXS said the custom array, called the NuGo GeneChip, contains human or mouse genes that are considered relevant for nutrigenomics research.
 
Under the partnership, ServiceXS will use the GeneChips to conduct gene expression-profiling studies that look at the “interactions between nutrition and the genome that affect cell function” and human health.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
