Premier Bio to Develop Custom Software for PamGene's MLPA Array

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Premier Biosoft will develop customized software for PamGene, which will use it in its microarrays, Premier Bio said last week.
 
The company said the software will be used by PamGene customers using its multiplex ligation-dependent probe-amplification microarray application.
 
MLPA is used to speed up “a number of genomic assays” and assesses gene copy number changes, SNPs, insertions, deletions, and methylation markers in one reaction tube, Premier Bio said.
 
Premier Bio said researchers would use custom oligo software to develop new multiplex genomic assays for pharmaceutical research.
