Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced that Molecular Genomics is the newest Agilent Certified Service Provider offering microarray services using the Agilent CGH/SNP microarrays, gene expression, and microRNA products.

“We are pleased to become an Agilent Certified Service Provider for Microarray Solutions,” said Dr. Jeffrey Wee, chief technology officer of Molecular Genomics.

Dr. Wee continued, “We have assembled an experienced team that has been working closely with Agilent in Singapore. The Agilent microarray platform will be one of the core genomics services at Molecular Genomics.”

Genomics research is experiencing exponential growth, and the trend of outsourcing genomics research to specialized service providers is growing in Asia. In 2011, Genomax Technologies spun off its genomics application team to form Molecular Genomics Pte Ltd.

Molecular Genomics is chartered to provide genomics contract research services to life sciences institutes and biotech companies in Singapore and the region.

“We are very pleased to welcome Molecular Genomics to our growing family of certified service providers,” said Robert Schueren, Agilent vice president and general manager, Genomics. “Expanding our offerings into Singapore has been a goal for some time, and Molecular Genomics offers a highly qualified and experienced team.”

Molecular Genomics became the first Agilent Certified Service Provider in Singapore after completing training and passing a rigorous series of assessments that included demonstrating proficiency in the complete Agilent integrated microarray workflow: Agilent CGH and CGH/SNP microarrays, sample labeling, hybridization, scanning on the Agilent DNA microarray scanner with feature extraction software, data analysis using GeneSpring and Agilent Genomic Workbench software, and sample quality control on the Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer.

Agilent offers the industry’s only CGH and CGH/SNP microarrays in a wide range of formats, which customers can custom design at no cost using Agilent’s eArray online tool.

Options range from a single array containing 1 million features through eight individual arrays on a standard 1-inch x 3-inch wafer. The company also manufactures genome-wide CGH arrays for human, mouse, rat and other model organisms.
