NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – VHLGenetics today announced an agreement with Labocor to market VHLGenetics' products in Spain.
The deal is part of VHLGenetics' strategy to expand the geographic footprint for its DNA testing services, the Wageningen, Netherlands-based company said. VHLGenetics provides genetic tests for animals and plants, including tests for genetic diseases and genetic characteristics, as well as for determining kinship, parentage, and identity. It also offers DNA testing for detecting microorganisms.
Labocor, headquartered in Madrid, provides solutions and services for food safety, animal nutrition and health, and environmental testing. The deal adds chip-based genotyping and mutation detection capabilities to Labocor's portfolio, VHLGenetics said.
Financial and other terms were not disclosed. The deal follows an agreement announced in the spring for VHLGenetics to resell GeneSeek's genomic profiling tests for pigs, cattle, and horses.
