NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Becton Dickinson announced today that it has acquired Sirigen, a maker of polymer dyes that are used in flow cytometry and other technologies.

Hampshire, UK-based Sirigen has developed the High Sensitivity Fluorescence detection technology with applications in the diagnostics and life science research markets. The firm's technology is platform agnostic, and according to its website, can facilitate high-volume screening for personalized medicine purposes and can be used to boost the performance of existing molecular diagnostics tests and immunoassays.
