NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Agilent Technologies and Eurofins Genomics announced today that they are collaborating to expand access to Agilent's SureVector cloning kits.
Eurofins will now offer Agilent's cloning kits as well as an assembled plasmid service using the kits. Agilent will also supply Eurofins with catalog components for the kits.
Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"SureVector is an ideal addition to Eurofins Genomics' gene synthesis and GeneStrands services," Uwe Koehler, Eurofins head of Gene Synthesis and Molecular Biology, said in a statement. "In this exclusive collaboration, Eurofins Genomics can now offer tailor-made SureVector plasmids, and any component of the SureVector kit can be replaced with customer-specific elements."
SureVector kits enable researchers to construct customized vectors from standard components, allowing them to construct vectors in as little as 30 minutes, according to Agilent. The system offers parts for mammalian, Escherichia coli, and yeast cells.
Eurofins Genomics, a division of the Eurofins Scientific Group, enables researchers to create custom components for any organism. It provides DNA synthesis products and DNA sequencing, genotyping, and bioinformatics services.
