Applied Microarrays Distributing Schott Nexterion Products in US, Canada

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Applied Microarrays earlier this week began distributing Schott Nexterion products in the US and Canada under an agreement forged by the two firms.

Under the terms of the deal, Applied Microarrays will manage new inquiries, orders, technical requests, and support needs of biotech and life science firms for the Nexterion line of coated and uncoated glass substrates for DNA and protein microarrays and other life science applications. Schott also continues to provide customer support in North American with the help of Applied Microarrays, it said.

"With its know-how in microarray applications as well as existing market presence and sales services, Applied Microarrays will help us provide our customers with easy access to our products, and at the same time they will receive dedicated support and superior service," Marcel Fischer, product manager for Schott Nexterion, said in a statement.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Schott Nexterion is a division of Schott Technical Glass Solutions. Based in Tempe, Ariz., Applied Microarrays provides customer array printing services.
