Agilent Extends Agreement with PerkinElmer on Bioanalyzer Chips
News Jan 21, 2016
Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced an extension to its longstanding agreement with PerkinElmer, which supplies chips for Agilent's popular 2100 Bioanalyzer system.
Since its introduction in 1999, the 2100 Bioanalyzer system has become an integral part of molecular biology laboratories around the world. It is used in DNA sequencing, gene expression, DNA fragment analysis, quality control for protein-based drugs, and other applications.
"This agreement ensures that, for years to come, molecular biologists can continue to depend on the sample quality and high-fidelity data they obtain with the Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer system," said Dr. Knut Wintergerst, marketing and support manager for microfluidics at Agilent.
What makes one person different from one another, and how did these differences evolve? A study is illuminating one aspect of this complicated question. The research examines hot spots of genetic variation within the human genome, examiining the sections of our DNA that are most likely to differ significantly from one person to another.READ MORE
