LGC

The company holds and licenses a variety of IP related to high-throughput genotyping, sample pooling, and methods involved in oligonucleotide ligation-based assays.

The kits have been validated at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the firm says 625 kits are now ready to ship.

LGC will be Swift's worldwide partner for amplicon-based targeted sequencing assays for genotyping AgBio samples, including crop species and animals. 

The research-use-only workflow combines UgenTec's flagship FastFinder PCR diagnostics software platform and LGC Biosearch Technologies' reagents.

The UK's Biosearch Technologies will distribute Arbor Biosciences' myBaits custom, targeted NGS panels to agricultural and seed breeding companies.

LGC provides customers across multiple markets with reference materials, proficiency testing, oligonucleotides, genomics reagents, and instrumentation.

The firms are also partnering to develop molecular diagnostic assays and for the supply of enzymes and oligonucleotides required for manufacturing.

The technology uses a proprietary chemistry that attaches primers to probes with a polyethylene glycol-based linker to prevent the formation of primer-dimers.
