Fluidigm and Bayer Cropscience Enter Global Agreement for Marker-Assisted Breeding and Quality Control
News Feb 19, 2010
Fluidigm Corporation has announced it has entered into a multi-year agreement with Bayer CropScience to supply integrated fluidic circuits (IFCs) and instrumentation to Bayer CropScience's global operations.
Bayer CropScience will be using Fluidigm technology to conduct marker-assisted breeding, genetic analysis in its molecular breeding program and quality control on its vegetable seeds.
Fluidigm claims that its technology increases output more than ten-fold and reduces the cost-per-data point to a mere fraction obtainable with standard 384 well plates for "high-throughput" genotyping. "Until recently, breeders throughout the world could only dream of such a technique, yet now Fluidigm is making this a reality," Worthington explained.
Fluidigm provides molecular breeders with BioMark™ and EP1™ systems, along with its microfluidic-based Dynamic Array™ IFCs to provide superior data quality, easy workflow, and higher throughput and cost savings for high-throughput SNP genotyping studies, the Company says.
