NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Agilent Technologies and Oxford Gene Technology today announced an expansion of an existing agreement for the provision of oligonucleotide microarrays and SureSelect target enrichment products to OGT for next-generation sequencing.
The deal builds on a partnership between the two firms dating back to 2007 when Agilent provided OGT access to its microarray platform. The agreement also made Agilent the OEM supplier of OGT-designed microarrays and made OGT an Agilent certified service provider.
Last year, OGT was the first company to achieve Agilent High-Throughput Microarray Certified Service Provider.
Terms of the extension were not disclosed.
Agilent's SureSelect Target Enrichment System is an in-solution hybridization capture technology that was originally developed in collaboration with the Broad Institute.
