JMP Genomics 3.2, OneTouch Pipette Tips

SAS has launched JMP Genomics 3.2, which streamlines analysis workflows for expression, exon, copy number, and genotype data. Among other changes, the product has a simplified user interface and includes new support for importing copy number CHP files from the Affymetrix Genotyping Console software and for importing expression data from Illumina BeadStudio software, the company said.

Sorenson BioScience has launched OneTouch pipette tips and e.dek pipette tip rack. The top of the ergonomically designed pipette tips is made of a flexible resin that produces a seal while requiring minimal force to eject the tip. The pliable top fits a wide range of pipettors, including multi-channel pipettors and pipettors with worn shafts. The second resin is a non-reactive polypropylene traditionally used in pipette tips.

Currently, 200 µl tips are available. 20µl and 1,000 µl tips are scheduled to ship in the third quarter.
