Acacia Research (Newport Beach, California) reported that, after a successful beta test, its CombiMatrix group's subsidiary, CombiMatrix Molecular Diagnostics (CMDX), has launched its Bacterial Artificial Chromosome array Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH) Technical Only Program (TOP) for reference laboratories and other clients.

TOP partners will market CMDX array services to their clients and contract for services with CMDX. After partners receive orders and samples, they will be sent to CMDX's CLIA Laboratory, where all testing will be completed (the technical portion).

The CombiMatrix Group is developing a platform technology to produce customizable arrays.
