ServiceXS Collaborates with the European Nutrigenomics Organization
News Jul 05, 2007
ServiceXS has announced that it will participate in a large-scale gene expression profiling study using the custom designed NuGO GeneChip® array, designed by The European Nutrigenomics Organization (NuGO) and manufactured by Affymetrix.
The NuGO GeneChip® arrays contain human or mouse genes relevant for nutrigenomics research. ServiceXS, a Dutch company specialized in microarray services, will perform this gene expression study using the Affymetrix GeneChip® Platform in assignment of NuGO.
The study aims to investigate interactions between nutrition and the genome that affect cell function and, ultimately, human health. ServiceXS will analyse the second wave of samples over a period of two years.
