Prolinx Taps VWR to Distribute RapXtract in North America

NEW YORK, Oct. 7 - Prolinx today said it has hired VWR International to distribute its RapXtract superparamagnetic separation technology and accessories in North America.


According to Prolinx, its RapXtract technology, which uses mass action to remove dye labeled precursors from nucleic acid-labeling reactions, allows labs to use minimum sample volumes when performing research such as whole genome analysis, SNP discovery, drug-discovery research, toxicology analysis, and pharmacogenomics.


Prolinx, based in Bothell, Wash., currently sells two product lines based on the technology: RapXtract dye terminator removal kits and RapXtract fluorescent nucleic acid-purification kits.
