Halo Genomics has signed an agreement with Life Technologies to co-market its target enrichment kits with Life Tech's SOLiD system, the company said this week.
According to Halo, its products "fit well" with the Library Building benchtop device for automated library preparation for the SOLiD that Life Tech plans to launch soon.
"Halo Genomics' technology provides superior specificity and uniform coverage," Mark Gardner, vice president of Life Technologies, said in a statement.
Based in Uppsala, Sweden, Halo Genomics offers target enrichment kits and services for next-gen sequencing, based on its Selector technology (IS 3/1/2011).
Last month, the firm launched the HaloPlex PCR Reagent Kit, which allows users to amplify up to 2,000 exons in a single tube and includes library preparation for next-gen sequencing.
