Pyrosequencing to Market Corbett Tools in Germany, France, Scandinavia

NEW YORK, April 11 - Pyrosequencing today said it will distribute to Germany, France, and Scandinavia the full range of thermocycling and sample-preparation products made by Corbett Research.


The expansion, beside giving Pyrosequencing customers access to a broader range of products and applications, also gives the company's direct-sales and support groups the sales teams access to a new group of customers. Pyrosequencing currently sells Corbett tools in the United States.


"Although it is very early in our experience with Corbett products, our initial outreach to customers in the United States has proved to be very reassuring," said President and CEO Pyrosequencing Erik Wallden. "We already see signs that the sales and service synergies of the combined offering is beginning to pay off."


Corbett products include the Rotor-Gene 3000, a four-channel, real-time thermocycler designed as an open-end system that supports a wide variety of chemistries; and the CAS-1200, which is a PCR workstation that can be used in conjunction with real-time or standard thermal cyclers.
