unkapiller, Ph.D., President of Applied Biosystems. "With these methods, the effort to achieve ultra high multiplexing can result in an unacceptably expensive and lengthy assay development process. We anticipate that our new capillary electrophoresis genotyping solution should allow customers conducting whole genome scans and other ultra high throughput studies to analyze genetic diversity more quickly and economically using our market-leading, automated electrophoresis systems."
By providing an ultra high throughput, high-multiplex solution to SNP genotyping, the SNPlexTM system is expected to complement the popular Applied Biosystems Sequence Detection Systems (SDS) products using TaqMan chemistry, which are geared to lower-to-high throughput genotyping studies.
About Applera Corporation and Applied Biosystems
Applera Corporation comprises two operating groups. The Applied Biosystems Group develops and markets instrument-based systems, reagents, software, and contract services to the life science industry and research community. Customers use these tools to analyze nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), small molecules, and proteins to make scientific discoveries, develop new pharmaceuticals, and conduct standardized testing. Applied Biosystems is headquartered in Foster City, CA, and reported sales of $1.6 billion during fiscal 2002. The Celera Genomics Group (NYSE:CRA), located in Rockville, MD, and South San Francisco, CA, is engaged principally in integrating advanced technologies to discover and develop new therapeutics. Celera intends to leverage its proteomic, bioinformatic, and genomic capabilities to identify and validate drug targets and diagnostic marker candidates, and to discover and develop new therapeutics. Its Celera Discovery SystemTM online platform, marketed exclusively through the Applied Biosystems Knowledge Business, is an integrated source of information based on the human genome and other biologPage: 1 2 3 4 Related biology news :1
