NEW YORK, Feb. 6 - Epoch Biosciences on Wednesday said that it has chosen Glen Research Corporation to distribute a number of its technologies "worldwide."
Glen Research, a Sterling, Va.-based provider of chemicals for DNA synthesis, will distribute Epoch's Redmond Red and Yakima Yellow fluorphores, its Eclipse non-fluorescent quencher, and its PPG modified base.
Terms of the agreement call for Glen Research to repackage Epoch's products "into package sizes suitable for purchase by oligonucleotide synthesis facilities and extends the penetration of these products," Epoch said in a statement.
