Agilent Names CBC Certified Service Provider for MiRNA Profiling

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – German firm Comprehensive Biomarker Center today said that Agilent Technologies has named it a certified service provider for microRNA profiling. 

As an Agilent CSP, CBC will leverage the firm's technologies for its analysis services. 

"Having CBC as a new provider for custom microRNA array solutions and a leading expert in the field of circulating microRNA biomarkers promises to deliver real value to the genomics community," Frédéric Laget, vice president of global commercial organization, diagnostics and genomics at Agilent, said in a statement. 

CBC, based in Heidelberg, discovers, analyzes, and validates microRNA biomarkers from body fluids. It also said today that it recently achieved ISO DIN/EN 17025:2005 accreditation for the extraction of total RNA from body fluids and the analysis of microRNA and mRNA using the Agilent microarray platform.
