NuGEN Technologies, Inc. has announced that the Cogenics has adopted NuGEN’s Ovation® Systems for RNA amplification and target preparation using Affymetrix GeneChip® 3’ expression arrays.

The Ovation Systems family of RNA amplification and labeling products empower life scientists to conduct sensitive gene expression profiling and signature discovery using sample types as diverse as whole blood, fresh tissue biopsies, laser-captured micro-dissected cells (LCM), sorted cells, and FFPE (formalin-fixed, paraffinembedded) tissue.

Cogenics will offer target preparation services using three Ovation Systems, enabling scientists to unlock biological secrets that lie within recent biological specimens, as well as the millions of samples collected and banked through years of clinical research. They include: Ovation™ Whole Blood Solution, WT-Ovation™ Pico System, T-Ovation™ FFPE System.

“NuGEN’s Ovation Systems are a great match for our services,” said Clive Higgins, general manager of Cogenics. “A large number of our customers are investigating challenging clinical samples using the Affymetrix GeneChip platform. With NuGEN’s excellent amplification technology, we can help them detect extremely lowabundance transcripts in severely limited or compromised samples. Our solution can salvage countless samples and years of valuable research in which they’ve invested.”

With NuGEN’s Ovation system, just picograms of total RNA from precious RNA samples can yield micrograms of amplified cDNA that can be fragmented and labeled for same-day hybridization to Affymetrix GeneChip arrays for global gene expression analysis.
