Bio&Sell to Market Nexttec's DNA Purification Kits in Germany, Austria, Switzerland

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Bio&Sell will distribute Nexttec's one-step DNA isolation kits in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, Nexttec said this week.
 
Nexttec said its DNA isolation system uses a proprietary sorbent matrix that retains proteins and substances of low molecular weight but allows pure DNA to pass, as opposed to silica-based methods that work the other way around. The company said this method is as much as five times faster than other methods.
 
The company said DNA Purification can be performed using Nexttec's Clean Columns or Clean Plates to get pure DNA from samples such as tissue, cells, plants, blood, plasmid DNA and genomic DNA.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
