Amersham Biosciences Introduces New CodeLink Human P450 SNP Bioarray for Broad-based Toxicogenomic Screening.
PISCATAWAY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 10, 2003
Most Comprehensive Coverage of the P450 Drug Metabolizing Genes
Offered to Date
Amersham Biosciences, the life sciences business of Amersham (LSE:, NYSE:, OSE: AHM), today announced the addition of the new CodeLink(TM) Human P450 SNP Bioarray to its existing CodeLink expression and SNP bioarray range. The CodeLink Human P450 SNP Bioarray genotypes 110 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within nine P450 genes (CYP1A1, 1A2, 1B1, 2C9, 2C19, 2D6, 2E, 3A4, and 3A5) offering comprehensive coverage of the P450 drug metabolism genes for research applications in genotyping and pharmacogenomic profiling.
The CodeLink Human P450 SNP Bioarray is designed for screening clinical trial populations to determine their toxicogenetic profiles and for the discovery of novel associations between P450 genotypes and phenotypes. To maximize throughput, the bioarray contains a set of four identical arrays of 110 SNPs to enable the testing of four individual samples simultaneously. Customers benefit from the speed and flexibility of the system and the ability to individually score each sample with high accuracy.
"The new CodeLink Human P450 SNP Bioarray will aid the discovery of clinically significant genetic markers in populations studies for researchers involved in high throughput toxicogenomic screening ,'" said Sam Raha, Vice President CodeLink at Amersham Biosciences. "An extension to our existing CodeLink line, the design of this new bioarray maximizes throughput and minimizes labor and cost with the ability to process four different samples on each bioarray simultaneously."
Amersham Biosciences, the life sciences business of Amersham (LSE: NYSE: OSE: AHM), is a world leader in developing and providing integrated systems and solutions for disease research, drug development and manufacture.
