Invitrogen Signs Three New Customers for Gateway Tech, Clones

NEW YORK, Sept. 30 (GenomeWeb News) - Invitrogen yesterday said it will supply Gateway technology and clones to three genomic research centers in the United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom.

Terms of the licensing agreements call for the company to offer the platform to Open Biosystems, a US-based distributor of genomic and proteomic research products; the UK Medical Research Council, a UK government-funded medical-research organization; and Ressourcenzentrum fur Genomforschung, a nonprofit German service center for genomics and proteomics research.


Invitrogen's Gateway technology enables researchers to insert a single entry clone into as many expression vectors as needed to study its function in a variety of ways, according to a company statement.


Invitrogen said additional licensing agreements will be announced in the coming weeks. Financial terms of the agreements were not disclosed.
