Agilent to provide support services for Roche NimbleGen users

8th November 2012

Agilent Technologies has agreed an exclusive deal to provide continued service to users of Roche's soon-to-be-defunct NimbleGen microarrays.

Roche has announced plans to phase out production and services for the arrays and Agilent has pledged to help all existing customers to make a smooth transition to its own arrays with minimal disruption.

The similarities of the technologies and products from both companies mean that this transition can be an efficient one, with the NimbleGen MS 200 Microarray Scanner offering the ability to run Agilent microarrays.

It is hoped that this arrangement will mean former Roche NimbleGen customers will continue to receive a high standard of service.

Robert Schueren, vice-president and general manager of Agilent's genomics systems division, said: "Our field service personnel are working directly with individual researchers to help convert their NimbleGen designs and they will continue to provide enhanced service and support throughout the transition period and beyond."

Last week, it was announced that Agilent and Premier Biosoft will be combining their technology offerings to provide a more integrated approach for lipidomics researchers.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801484616-ADNFCR
