Expression Analysis Buys Genome Analyzer, Plans to Offer Ag Services

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Expression Analysis said today that it has purchased an Illumina Genome Analyzer to add to its genomics services.
The Durham, NC-based genotyping and gene-expression services company also said that it plans to diversify its services to include agricultural offerings.
Expression Analysis CEO Steve McPhail said in a statement that client interest in both plant and animal genomics services was key to the decision to acquire the Genome Analyzer. McPhail said the company is the only Illumina-certified service provider to offer all of the Illumina platforms, including the iScan, BeadStation, and BeadXpress, in addition to the Genome Analyzer.
The company also offers sequencing services using platforms from Affymetrix, Life Technologies’ Applied Biosystems business, and Helicos BioSciences.
Expression Analysis said that it would debut the new agricultural services platform at the International Plant & Animal Genome Conference in San Diego, which begins Saturday.
