Girus Life Sciences Inc. and Eppendorf Biochip Systems GmbH have entered into a Service Provider Agreement for Eppendorf’s microarray products. With this move, Girus becomes an Eppendorf top tier “Certified Service Provider”.
According to Sven Bulow, Managing Director of Eppendorf Biochip Systems, “Girus fills a gap in our network of Certified Service Providers by offering services for our microarray systems in tandem with its cell culture and stem cell contract research capabilities. Because of the increasing importance of the stem cell community and our most recent product launch, the TF Stem Cell Chip for analyzing transcription factor activities in differentiating vs. pluripotent cells, the expertise Girus can offer our customers can help us serve these researchers much more successfully.”
Eppendorf has established a network of Certified Service Providers in North America and Europe that offer consultation and experimental services on the Eppendorf microarray platform. These services include both standard theme-specific microarrays as well as transcription factor arrays and customized microarrays.
