The biorepository contains thousands of human biological samples that can be used to validate diagnostic assays developed by Transgenomic. Transgenomic will use the samples to develop and validate its REVEAL family of proprietary ICE COLD-PCR-based oncology assays, as well as its WAVE MCE System and SURVEYOR® Scan Mutation Detection Kits.

“This transaction significantly strengthens Transgenomic’s position in translational medicine services, providing a deep source of clinical samples allowing us to validate new drug-associated genetic targets,” said Craig Tuttle, Chief Executive Officer of Transgenomic. “The biorepository provides not only strategic and operational benefits, but also long-term cost savings. Acquiring specimens on a case-by-case basis is expensive and time-consuming; such expenditure would quickly surpass the cost of acquiring this asset.”

The Gene Logic biorepository consists of a high quality, diverse collection of human tissue samples and extracted DNA specimens with linked clinical information. The 60,000 samples and specimens cover multiple disease areas, including many thousands of cancer tissue specimens.
