Generation Scotland and Arrayjet form exciting new collaboration
21 December 2012
The project focuses on developing new products and services for biomarker identification and development
Developing new products and services for biomarker identification and development, Generation Scotland (GS) and Arrayjet Ltd have announced a new collaboration.
The project builds on the complementary strengths of Generation Scotland and Arrayjet; combining high quality research, human biobank material and health data with cutting edge inkjet microarray technology. The initiative, supported by funding from Scottish Enterprise aims to develop new products and services to support biomarker identification and development.
Following the announcement, Dr Iain McWilliam, CEO of Arrayjet said, "The field of biomarker discovery and research is a dynamic one, and it is a key focus area for Arrayjet. Our technology allows us to rapidly produce high quality microarrays from a wide range of biobank sample types such as those available to Generation Scotland. We are excited to share the opportunity with Generation Scotland to further demonstrate how microarrays can benefit biomarker research using the GS sample resource."
Professor Andrew Morris from Generation Scotland said, "This is an exciting project for Generation Scotland, allowing us to explore cutting edge technologies to facilitate research on GS samples and date and maximise the efficiency with which that research can be done".
