NEW YORK, Feb. 22 - Genetix, a British microarray company, will begin distributing array slides worldwide made by Danish company Exiqon sometime in early March, the companies said on Friday.
Terms of the deal call for Genetix to distribute Exiqon's Euray Immobilzer slide kits, which Nish Patel, Genetix's business manager, said "complements" its DNA spotters and scanners.
Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Genetix is based in New Milford, and Exiqon has headquarters in Copenhagen.
Last month, Genetix said it had licensed the rights to manufacture and sell microarray scanners owned by Biomedical Photometrics. The scanners, called aQuire, are intended to complement Genetix' existing arraying robots and to allow the company to sell what it calls complete systems for gene-expression analysis.
