MOgene is Certified Service Provider for Agilent's Array CGH Products
News Oct 12, 2005
MOgene, LC has announced that it is a Certified Service Provider (CSP) for Agilent Technologies' array CGH (comparative genomic hybridization) services. MOgene, LC was already a CSP for Agilent gene _expression microarrays.
This additional Agilent certification confirms MOgene's continued ability to provide complete premium DNA microarray services.
Certification for the Agilent program was granted once MOgene's personnel completed a training program and the laboratory, as a whole, passed a rigorous set of assessments.
"This certification constitutes a formal endorsement from Agilent that we can provide reliable CGH results in addition to gene _expression microarrays that researchers can count on from sample to sample, study to study," said Shaukat Rangwala, VP of MOgene's Research operations.
"We offer the highest quality microarray service (gene _expression and CGH) to a research community eager to make use of Agilent's highly sensitive 60-mer oligonucleotide format."
Genetic Diversity Helps Protect Against DiseaseNews
Why do populations have genetic diversity when 'Survival of the Fittest' suggests that only one gene pool should thrive? It's a question that is hard to answer experimentally. A new study looking at evolutionary change in real time in tiny fungal parasites may provide a solution.
