SciGene and ARUP Laboratories to Develop Automated DNA Sample Processing Technology

  • SciGene and ARUP Laboratories inked a deal to develop an automated platform for processing DNA samples used in microarray-based tests for detecting genetic defects. The goal is to develop a method that will process patient samples in less than one working day. 

    ARUP Laboratories will test and optimize procedures performed on SciGene’s ArrayPrep™ Target Preparation System. It is a robotic liquid-handling and incubation platform designed to automate procedures used to label, purify, and load patient DNA samples onto microarrays.
