Millipore to Distribute Gen-Probe's Mycoplasma Assay

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Millipore will distribute one of Gen-Probe’s assays under an expansion of an ongoing development and distribution collaboration, the companies said today.
Millipore will market and sell the Gen-Probe Mycoplasma Tissue Culture Non-Isotopic test to biopharmaceutical customers. The assay is a DNA probe-based system that works with Millipore's sample-preparation products to detect mycoplasma.
Gen-Probe and Millipore are currently developing new assays designed to detect micro-organisms in biopharmaceutical production.
The companies said the first novel assay from the ongoing collaboration, which began in 2005, should launch sometime this year.
