Eurofins Genomics to Supply Oligonucleotides to Swedish Universities

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Eurofins Genomics today announced it signed a two-year contract to be a preferred supplier of oligonucleotides to Lund University.

Eurofins Genomics becomes one of several preferred suppliers as part of a recently awarded framework contract, it said, adding the contract builds on long-standing relationship between the parties. Eurofins will now offer best oligonucleotide prices to Lund University, Gothenburg University, Linköping University, and Chalmers University of Technology.

"This contract will ensure that the whole scientist community in South Sweden will have access to the Eurofins Genomics' products and services and benefit from our commitment to them," Eurofins Genomics Senior VP Bruno Poddevin said in a statement.

In May the company inked a two-year contract with the UK Shared Business Services to be a preferred supplier of oligonucleotides and DNA sequencing.
