tebu-bio Adopts Toray's 3D-Gene Platform for miRNA and mRNA Arrays Services
Toray Industries has selected tebu-bio and their laboratories to strengthen Toray’s microarray platform in the European market.
Philippe Fixe, Marketing Manager at tebu-bio, indicated that this collaboration enables tebu-bio to provide a full set of services in the field of biomarker discovery, directly to European researchers. “Toray's 3D-Gene® technology is unique and extremely sensitive. It allows robust profiling of mRNAs and also miRNAs, while overcoming common limitations seen with existing high-throughput microRNA and mRNA microarray profiling technologies. In addition, Toray’s 3D-Gene® platform complements the biomarker-based services currently provided by tebu-bio, such as antibody-based protein profiling, multiplex protein quantification, ELISAs and qPCR”.
Tokyo-based Toray Industries has successfully offered their 3D-Gene® platform in Japan for years. The organization decided recently to expand its diffusion towards European researchers by developing strategic collaborations with well-established laboratories such as tebu-bio laboratories based in the Paris area.
According to Toray, their 3D-Gene® technology includes features proven to enhance assay sensitivity and reproducibility, enabling analysis of low-abundance miRNA and mRNAs, even in degraded samples such as formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue specimens. tebu-bio is now certified by Toray Industries for providing 3D-Gene® Platform Expression Profiling Technology as Services in Europe.
