NEW YORK, May 27 - Agencourt Biosciences has signed an agreement with Lucigen, of Middleton, Wisc., to be the exclusive North American distributor of Lucigen's research products, the companies said today.


The products which Agencourt is to distribute include Lucigen's CloneSmart cloning kits, for the cloning of whole genomes or difficult-to-clone genes using low-background vectors, and related research products.


Under the agreement, Agencourt, of Beverly, Mass., will also gain rights to Lucigen's single cell genomics gene discovery libraries, in return for genomic sequencing services and undisclosed payments.


Separately, Agencourt said that it had hired two new sales representatives, Linda Ray, who was a New England sales rep for sequencing and genetic stability testing company SeqWright, and Linda Bean, formerly of Lark technologies.
