ses a line of oligonucleotide probes for Fluorescent In Situ Hybridization (FISH) called SureFISH. Approximately 400 probes are available in its catalog, covering most relevant regions in the genome. Additionally, the company provides a range of microarrays to the research market for different types of applications: gene expression, microRNA, methylation, splice variants, and chromatin immunoprecipitation applications. The company’s end-to-end solution includes reagents for sample preparation and microarray processing; hardware for sample QC and high-throughput microarray scanning; microarrays on industry-standard 1’ × 3’ glass slides for key applications; custom microarray design services; and GeneSpring software products for data analysis. PCR & qPCR Instrumentation and Molecular Biology Reagents PCR is a standard laboratory method used to amplify the amount of genetic material of a given sample to enable further interrogation. qPCR or real time PCR is also a standard method used in genomic research facilities to measure the amount of a specific nucleic acid sequence within a sample. The company offers a portfolio of PCR & qPCR instruments, as well as specialty enzymes for amplifying difficult sample types. In addition to PCR and qPCR enzymes, the company offers a range of molecular biology reagents including tools for cloning and mutagenesis applications. Life Sciences and Diagnostics Customers The company had approximately 45,000 customers for its life sciences and diagnostics business in 2014. A significant number of its life sciences and diagnostics customers are also customers of its chemical analysis business. Life Sciences and Diagnostics Sales, Marketing and Support The life science and diagnostics channels focus on the therapeutics and human disease research customer base (pharma, biotech, CRO, CMO and generics), clinical customer base (pathology labs and high complexity clinical testing labs) and on emerging life sciences opportunities in life science research institutes. The company primarily uses direct sales to market its solutions to its pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and clinical accounts. The company sells its consumable products through distributors, telesales, electronic commerce and direct sales. The company delivers its support services to customers in various ways, including on-site assistance with repair or exchange of returned products, telephone support and self-diagnostic services provided over the Internet.
