ClearHyb™ systems to be manufactured by California-based SciGene.

BlueGnome has signalled their move into laboratory hardware with the announcement at the European Cytogenetic Association (E.C.A.) conference in Porto, Portugal of a supply agreement with SciGene, Sunnyvale, CA.

Under the terms of the agreement SciGene will manufacture BlueGnome’s new range of ClearHyb hybridization and wash systems.

Commenting on the agreement BlueGnome’s CEO, Nick Haan said, “Time to market is a major issue for new laboratories that wish to establish and evolve their microarray-based services. With sales to 39 countries so far this year we find that new laboratories are increasingly looking for a complete turnkey solution, including laboratory hardware, which enables their newly trained scientists to deliver the highest quality results in the shortest possible timeframe. We have long recommended SciGene products as the best available solution for hybridization and washing of our microarrays and are excited to be working with them to strengthen this relationship with new ClearHyb products.”

Jim Stanchfield, Ph.D., President and CEO of SciGene, added, “We are pleased with our partnership whereby SciGene technology will be used to simplify the microarray workflow used with BlueGnome’s array solutions that will enhance the reproducibility of these assays and their customers’ laboratory productivity.”

New ClearHyb instruments may be ordered immediately, with the first customer shipment expected in August 2011. For further information see:
