SuperArray Licenses ABI's PCR Tech to Develop, Sell Assays and Reagents

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — SuperArray Bioscience has licensed PCR and real-time PCR technologies from Applied Biosystems to develop and market PCR and related reagents, SuperArray said yesterday.
 
Under the non-exclusive agreement, SuperArray said it will market reagents and assay kits for PCR and real-time PCR that use ABI’s SYBR Green and probe-based methods, and will develop real-time PCR reagents and technologies that it will market to researchers.   
 
SuperArray President Li Shen said in a statement that the combination of qRT-PCR with SuperArray’s coverage of human, mouse, and rat genes will help researchers “unveil important biomolecular networks of genes.”
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
