which eliminates the effect caused by potentially invariant probes
within a probe set, will provide cost...
Kreatech Biotechnology launches a series of array-based labelling
kits for genomic DNA for microarray based comparative genomic
hybridisation analysis, offering a one-step procedure that does not
require the need for amplification.
Researchers have identified a serine protease inhibitor as a novel
candidate susceptibility gene for chronic obstructive pulmonary
disease (COPD). The discovery has major implications, especially in
smokers, where the role of the...
According to a recent report, projected sales for the worldwide DNA

UK Life Sciences Company Genetix has launched a new hybrid bed
option designed to compliment its high-throughput, fully featured
QArray microarrayer platform used to detect low-level expression of
genes making it ideal for all microarray...
Despite a dip in the fortunes of the biotechnology industry,
bioinformatics firm BlueGnome has achieved profit in less than
three years since its formation. The firm's fortunes are in
contrast to similar start up firms within...
Compared to the total research products market, which has been in
the doldrums of late, the DNA microarray market continues to
experience robust growth world wide, according to new market
research from Frost & Sullivan.
