Agencourt Plans to Beef Up Its Reagents Profile

BOSTON, Oct. 3 - Agencourt Bioscience is in the process of expanding its reagents business, a company official told GenomeWeb today.

 

Mann Shoffner, senior manager of marketing and business development at Agencourt, said the company is "identifying new market opportunities" within the reagent market. He also said the company is looking to hire an undisclosed number of R&D researchers to support the effort.

 

"There's a whole list of new purification needs in the market today," Shoffner said here at TIGR's 2002 annual GSAC meeting. "We are beefing up our effort here." He declined to elaborate.
