The $6 million first phase of the salmon genome sequencing project will be completed solely with Sanger technology, while the second phase will make use of newer sequencing technologies.

Under a five-year agreement, Beckman Coulter will exclusively distribute CompuCyte's iGeneration technology outside of North America.

The contract is the first of multiple phases to sequence the salmon genome, and is set to be completed and made public by early 2011.

Researchers from Canada, Chile, and Norway will work with Beckman Coulter Genomics to map the Atlantic salmon genome in a $6 million collaboration.

Beckman's revenues were pushed higher on strong recurring revenue and diagnostic sales.

The cuts were due to consolidation of Beckman Coulter's facilities in Orange County, Calif., and its recent acquisition of Olympus' diagnostics business.

Affy said the deal will help fill a gap for customers performing higher-throughput studies by offering access to liquid-handling tools designed to work with its next-generation GeneTitan system and older products.

Affymetrix and Beckman Coulter will develop a platform combining their technologies for automated target preparation.

Beckman Coulter will offer the automated platform with its won CyAn flow cytometers.

The new Beckman unit, which offers genomic services such as sequencing, sample prep, genotyping, gene expression, and biological efficiency and safety testing, is headquartered in Beverly, Mass., where Agencourt is located.
