PREMIER Biosoft and MRC-Holland form an alliance

Press release from: PREMIER Biosoft International

PREMIER Biosoft International, a leading bioinformatics company, and MRC-Holland, the inventors of MLPA® technology, announced an alliance. Multiplex Ligation-dependent Probe Amplification (MLPA®) is a method to establish the copy number of up to 45 nucleic acid sequences in a single reaction. Detecting copy number changes in the genome, the primary application of MLPA® technology, is a widely researched area. Current efforts are directed towards more comprehensive cataloging and characterization of these changes. MLPA® probes are able to discriminate between sequences that differ by just one nucleotide, making them a highly sensitive and precise tool for detecting the changes. It is rapidly becoming the most favored among the currently used methods.

The alliance will help MLPA® users design custom oligos for genes that do not have kits available. Currently, no such design tool exists. "With this collaboration, both PREMIER Biosoft and MRC-Holland will use their core competencies and expertise to develop a powerful bioinformatics tool for MLPA® users." commented Kay Brown, V.P. Business Development and Marketing.
