Agilent Technologies and Illumina team up

22nd April 2009

Agilent Technologies and Illumina have teamed up to enter into a non-exclusive co-marketing agreement that involves supporting a solution for those conducting resequencing studies.

It was revealed that the former has optimised its SureSelect Target Enrichment System for the latter’s Genome Analyser, which is a sequencing platform.

These provide efficient methods for focussing on particular regions of the genome, Agilent Technologies said in a statement.

"It allows researchers to conduct studies that otherwise would not be feasible," the company explained.

"Targeted resequencing also enables researchers to sequence areas identified through genome-wide association studies in addition to sequencing candidate genes and candidate regions."

Meanwhile, last week saw the Medalist i1000D in-circuit test system unveiled by Agilent Technologies, which said it will begin shipping the product in the third quarter of 2009.

Equipped with digital test capabilities, the product was designed for cost-sensitive manufacturers who want this facility as well as analogue in order to work with more modern and complex printed circuit board assemblies.
