NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Medgenics announced on Wednesday a collaboration with the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to accelerate the development of new therapies for pediatric rare and orphan genetic diseases.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Biomatrica has received a $1 million grant to develop a blueprint and functional prototype of an ambient temperature biobank for the US Army.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — Illumina may be the dominant microarray vendor but that hasn't stopped some from pondering the future of its BeadChip business given the San Diego company's focus on next-generation sequencing.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Coriell Institute for Medical Research is launching a biobank on the West Coast that will house induced pluripotent stem cell lines, and is using a $10 million grant from the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine to fund the facility.

If there was ever a year that microarray technology went mainstream, it was 2013.

There is "still a lot to like" about Affymetrix, according to Peter Lawson.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The University of Kentucky is creating a biobank that will be a large, flexible resource that gathers samples from the patient population at the university hospital.

Affymetrix executives in recent weeks have predicted that the firm's agreement with the UK Biobank to genotype its 500,000-sample collection on its Axiom platform could sway other biorepositories to choose its arrays for similar projects.

The UK Biobank and Affymetrix recently finished developing an array that will be used to genotype all 500,000 samples in UKBB's biorepository.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The China National Genebank today announced a deal under which BioStorage Technologies will provide biorepository expertise, technology, and processes to support the development of "one of the world's largest genomic biobanks."
