NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — DNAStar has signed up Infogen to distribute its gene expression software in several European nations, the company said today.
Under the agreement, Infogen has gained the rights to sell the ArrayStar software, which is used to visualize and analyze gene expression data, in the UK, Ireland, Italy, Spain, and Greece.
The ArrayStar line was launched in 2007, and it has been expanded to handle applications from data generated by next-generation sequencing platforms, DNAStar said.
“We have seen continuing demand for ArrayStar and felt that our best way to capture this business was by adding to our distribution organization,” Bob Steinhauser, DNAStar’s director of marketing, said in a statement.
Steinhauser said Infogen possesses the “technical expertise required to properly sell and support” the ArrayStar software. He added that the company, which has bases in the UK and in Italy, has important knowledge of local markets
