Integrated DNA Technologies Obtains Right to Sell ddRNAi Oligos from Promega

NEW YORK, June 10 (GenomeWeb News) - Integrated DNA Technologies has licensed DNA-directed RNA interference technology from Promega, the company said yesterday.


Under the non-exclusive agreement, IDT can make and sell oligos for use in ddRNAi. The company, based in Coralville, Iowa, is the first oligonucleotide manufacturer in the US to obtain a ddRNAi license from Promega.


Promega, in turn, holds an exclusive license from Benitec that allows it to sell custom ddRNAi-related oligos and related services. The technology is protected in the United States by US patent No. 6,573,099.
