Biozym Scientific to Distribute PCR Thermocyclers for Analytik Jena in Germany, Austria

NEW YORK, May 25 (GenomeWeb News) - Analytik Jena has signed on Biozym Scientific to distribute its PCR technology in Germany and Austria, the Jena, Germany-based company said today.


Under the agreement, Biozym, based in Hessisch Oldendorf, Germany, will sell Analytik Jena's SpeedCycler PCR thermocycler.


SpeedCycler, developed by Analytik Jena and the Hans Knoll Institute and launched last year, has been licensed by Applera, according to the company.


Biozym Diagnostik, which belongs to Biozym Scientific, was barred by injunction last year from selling MJ Research's real-time PCR thermocyclers in Germany, following a patent dispute with Applera.
