Premier Biosoft Teams With MRC-Holland to Enhance MLPA Probes

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Premier Biosoft and MRC-Holland are partnering in a new venture that will couple Biosoft's software with the Dutch company's diagnostic tools, Biosoft said Monday.
 
To be known as Premier Biosoft International, the partnership will pool the companies' platforms and know-how to enable users of MRC-Holland's MLPA to design custom oligos for genes that do not already have kits available.
 
MLPA is used to establish the copy number of as many as 45 nucleic acid sequences in a single reaction, and is able to discriminate sequences differing by only one nucleotide.
