NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Zymo Research said today that it has signed a North American distribution agreement for its nucleic acid products with global lab product supplier VWR.
Under the terms of the deal, both companies will sell Zymo's DNA purification, RNA extraction, microbiomic analysis, and epigenetics products throughout North America. According to Zymo, the arrangement will provide it with an expanded distribution channel to pharmaceutical, diagnostic, and manufacturing customers, including clients in the environmental testing, water treatment, food quality, and bioremediation markets.
Additional terms were not disclosed.
"Our partnership with VWR will open many more distribution channels for Zymo Research's products to other scientific markets that we currently are not able to serve," Marc Van Eden, Zymo's vice president of business development, said in a statement. "Partnering with VWR is a win-win situation in that not only does Zymo Research reach a larger customer base, but we also bring value to VWR's portfolio of nucleic acid products."
