Douglas Scientific, LGC Ink Distribution Pact

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – LGC will distribute Douglas Scientific's Array Tape laboratory automation platform in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, according to an agreement announced today.

Douglas Scientific is headquartered in Alexandria, Minn. Its Array Tape platform consists of a liquid handling and assay processing system, a PCR waterbath, a detection instrument, and software. The platform is "highly compatible" with Hoddesdon, UK-based LGC's KASP genotyping assays and reagents, the companies said in a statement.

"This relationship is more than extending the reach of our individual product offerings," said Darren Cook, executive vice president of business development and strategy at Douglas Scientific. "It's about the alignment of two compelling missions."

This is the second such distribution pact for Douglas Scientific this year. As PCR Insider reported in January, the company inked a similar agreement with EnviroLogix to distribute EnviroLogix's DNAble technology with its Array Tape platform.
