BioMicro To Distribute Kreatech's Microarray Labeling Technology in North America

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - BioMicro Systems will distribute Kreatech Biotechnologies' Universal Linkage System for microarrays to customers in the US and in Canada, the companies said Tuesday.
 
Amsterdam-based Kreatech's ULS products are used to attach "a variety of labels directly to DNA, RNA and proteins," and are built on a platinum-based system “that produces highly stable labeling under a wide variety of conditions,” the company said.
 
The distribution agreement "expands our reach into the North American microarray user base through a focused and experienced microfluidic and microarray technology solution provider," said Rik van Heijningen, Kreatech's vice president of commercial operations.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
