Co-developed Genomic Solutions

Beckman Coulter and Affymetrix collaborate

Affymetrix Inc and Beckman Coulter Inc, Brea, Calif, will soon offer researchers co-developed products in genomic research, fortified by end-to-end support. The partnership will yield an expanding list of Affymetrix-validated automated target-preparation methods developed on an Affymetrix-specific configuration of Beckman Coulter’s Biomek FXp Dual Arm Multichannel–Span 8 liquid handler. This platform will give researchers standardized systems that include all components necessary to run Affymetrix genotyping and gene-expression assays. Benefits also will include the flexibility to process samples using Affymetrix GeneChip® Arrays or Array Plates with a single method, user-friendly interfaces, and rapid implementation of new methods.
