Genicon Sciences and Qiagen to co-Distribute RLS-based Microarray Tools

NEW YORK, Feb. 5 - Genicon Sciences of San Diego and Qiagen announced yesterday an amendment to their distribution and supply agreement as Genicon launched an RLS two-color nucleic acid microarray toolkit.


The two companies will now have co-exclusive distribution rights in North America for microarray toolkits based on Genicon's resonance light scattering technology. Qiagen products will be sold under the HiLight brand name.


Genicon, meantime, introduced its two-color nucleic acid microarray toolkit, which is part of the RLS array detection system for gene expression analysis. The product is designed to derive more data from smaller amounts of biological material, based on the RLS system, which uses a non-fluorescent signal generation and detection technology based on nanometer sized metal colloidal particles.
