Akonni

The money will be used to accelerate development of Akonni's hands-free, sample-to-answer system with a goal of providing testing to underserved populations.

Eppendorf will promote Akonni's nucleic acid extraction kits for use with Eppendorf's automated pipetting system to clinical, clinical research, and forensic laboratories in North America.

The firms will jointly market Akonni's TruTip nucleic acid extraction kits with the Eppendorf epMotion automated pipetting system.

While the system will provide a level of multiplexing that is "more than conventional PCR, but not as high as microarrays in general," the expected cost "is on par with, and in some respects lower than, what hospitals and clinics are paying for real-time PCR."
