Ambry Genetics last week launched its CancerArray, an exon-focused, 180,000-probe array for comparative genomic hybridization.

Ambry's StemArray is manufactured by Roche NimbleGen and enables researchers studying stem cells to detect genomic abnormalities that would ordinarily be missed by low-resolution karyotyping.

CLG will sell the StemArray products and services to its current customers and other companies and research institutions.

Ambry Genetics is now able to offer all Roche NimbleGen applications, the first of Roche NimbleGen's growing list of service providers to achieve such certification.

Ambry is now certified on all Roche NimbleGen applications, offering services from its lab in California.
