New Genome-to-Array Service speeds the analysis of unknown microbial DNA

Febit Biomed : 11 December, 2007  (New Product)
A new Genome-to-Array Service is being offered by febit in partnership with Californian company Prognosys Biosciences.
The service enables scientists to access the latest technology and know-how in sequencing and microarrays even for DNA where no standard microarrays are available. Using the service, scientists can go from biological genetic material to a working Microarray experiment in weeks. Scientists in the field of microbial genomics for example now have a powerful and affordable tool for the analysis of unknown microbial DNA.

Prognosys Biosciences contributes the sequencing of the organism's DNA by using next-generation sequencing. Geniom Technology from febit is used for preparative sample enrichment and supports the assembly process following sequencing. The data resulting from the next-generation sequencing procedure is the basis for synthesis of the biochip for Microarray analysis. The biochip can be produced and analysed in the Geniom One instrument either by the customer or as a service by febit.

In addition, febit will launch a new Microarray analysis device in spring 2008, the Geniom RT Analyzer. The lower priced RT Analyzer enables customers to analyse Geniom Biochips, but does not include the ability to synthesise the chips themselves like the Geniom One product.

Anthony Caruso, vice president informatics and application software of febit stated: 'The powerful bioinformatics basis of the Geniom Technology enables us to offer this easy-to-use service to our customers for a very reasonable price.'
