Agilent Technologies to provide services for BGI

14th April 2010

Agilent Technologies is to work together with BGI, one of the world’s largest genome research centres, in order to assist with the facility’s sequencing efficiency.

The science firm will be providing a number of its gene analysis technologies to the centre, including the 2100 Bioanalyzer, the SureSelect Target Enrichment System and the Bravo Automated Liquid Handling Platform.

These systems will allow researchers at BGI to target specific genes more efficiently and perform analysis in a fast, precise and automated process.

BGI explained that it is to work with Agilent in order to streamline its activities as it looks to move forward on new human genetic research programmes, including analysis of cancer genomes.

Gustavo Salem, vice-president and general manager of Agilent’s Biological Systems Division, said: “BGI is one of the preeminent sequencing research facilities in the world and we are extremely pleased that they have selected Agilent as their technology partner to streamline their workflow.”

Last month, the company announced the appointment of Rick Burdsall to the newly-created role of chief infrastructure officer, which will see him take responsibility for global sourcing, workplace services and IT.
