Paradigm Genetics is teaming up with Arcturus Biosciences to use a laser tool as part of its genetic data gathering.

Paradigm says the laser capture microdissection system will be used with its own system “to target specific cell types for analysis, rather than mixed cell populations, resulting in more precise genomic data.”

Paradigm unveiled the system at a drug technology conference this week in Boston.

The companies said they have already signed “a large pharmaceutical company” for the service.
