BioTrove has announced that Charles River Laboratories will use the BioTrove OpenArray™ system to detect rodent-specific pathogens as part of their effort to evaluate the health of rodent species.

This is the second OpenArray instrument purchased by Charles River since 2006, when the organization adopted the OpenArray SNP Genotyping System for use in its genetic quality control process.

Charles River Laboratories is designing pathogen panels using OpenArray plates, each of which can contain between 16 and 3072 easily-changed assays and can be loaded with up to 144 samples.

The company says that the OpenArray system’s high-throughput, large-scale PCR screening capabilities permits the detection of infectious agents, while its flexibility in assay panel modification accommodates the addition or modification of assays to include newly-identified strains or species.
