Biosearch Technologies Licenses Genetic Technologies' Non-Coding DNA IP

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Genetic Technologies has licensed certain of its non-coding DNA patents to Biosearch Technologies for research purposes, GTG said today.
 
BTI will use the worldwide license, which includes IP for SNP genotyping and allelic discrimination, to manufacture and distribute oligos, probes, and primers for research use only.
 
All of BTI’s customers will be covered under the GTG patents, GTG said.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
