, Inc., provider of the quantitative Nuclease Protection Assay A nuclease protection assay is a laboratory test used in biochemistry and genetics to identify individual RNA molecules in a heterogeneous RNA sample extracted from cells. The technique can identify one or more RNA molecules of known sequence even at low total concentration.  (qNPA[TM]) today announced the launch of the quantitative Nuclease protection assay (qNPA[TM]) 96 Max gene expression assay at the American Association American Association refers to one of the following professional baseball leagues:

) annual meeting. This new testing configuration enables the measurement of 46 genes in a 96 well Array Plate. The offering provides researchers with the ability to analyze a larger number of gene signatures for research and clinical validation work in academic and translational medicine translational medicine Molecular medicine The constellation of activities which seek to translate the science of gene discovery, gene transfer, and functional genomics into gene-targeted therapies .

This 96 Max gene expression automated assay is based on HTG's proven qNPA ArrayPlate technology platform, which allows researchers to investigate a larger set of genes with greater precision than traditional gene expression assays. The technology allows academic researchers to quickly and efficiently measure gene expression levels of mRNA and miRNA in a variety of cell and tissue types including formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE FFPE Formalin-Fixed, Paraffin-Embedded (tissue)
FFPE Fédération de la Fonction Publique Européenne (Staff Representation at the European Commission) 
) samples. The technology is ideal for detecting small, yet important changes in gene expression levels which other gene expression platforms cannot reliably detect.

"HTG's new assay offering enables our academic researchers, who are conducting clinical and basic research, to essentially unlock information from sample types that were previously very challenging and near impossible to evaluate accurately," said BJ Kerns, VP Strategic Marketing and Business Development, HTG. "This is yet another expansion of our ArrayPlate platform. We devised this unique testing format to accommodate the needs of academic researchers who are evaluating tumor stratification, pathway and outcome schemes, as well as chemosensitivity."
