NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Norwegian genomics startup Mole Genetics said this week that VWR will distribute its first product – an automated DNA extraction system called GeneMole – in Europe.
GeneMole is a fully automated system capable of running up to 16 samples at a time. The system has a list price of €9,500 ($13,900) and offers similar performance as competing automated systems that can cost more then $50,000, the company said.
A Mole Genetics spokesman told GenomeWeb Daily News that VWR has exclusive distribution rights for the system in the European research market.
The company has not yet finalized its distribution plans for the US and the rest of the world, the spokesman said.
