Arrayjet Inks $600K Contract with CDI Laboratories

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Scottish microarray instrument maker Arrayjet today announced it has won a contract with CDI Laboratories.

Under the terms of the contract, valued at more than $600,000, CDI will use Arrayjet's Ultra Marathon II high-throughput microarray printer to make its HuProt proteomics arrays and custom microarrays.

"This is a significant contract for us," Arrayjet CEO Iain McWilliam said in a statement. "Not only does it have an exceptionally strong international focus, but strengthens our proposition as the leading provider of microarray printing know-how and technology."

In 2014, Arrayjet signed a co-development agreement with Safeguard for food safety arrays.
