Edmonton-based Delta Genomics Centre becomes Neogen's fifth animal genomics laboratory, joining ones in Australia, Brazil, Scotland, and the US.
The lab is a major genetic testing supplier to all 27 of Australia's major beef cattle associations, and provides services for other farm animals.
The transaction is expected to boost Neogen's presence in Brazil, allowing it to leverage Deoxi's relationships with customers in that country.
The test is based on isothermal amplification and detects L. monocytogenes in about 10 minutes after sample processing.
Under the agreement, customers will be able to purchase GeneSeek Genomic Profiler SNP arrays from Illumina, initially for genotyping cattle, pigs, and horses.
Illumina has become the dominant player in the cattle genotyping field, while array vendors are beginning to envision a future where every animal is genotyped at birth.
