Integrated DNA Technologies Signs Distributor Agreement in Switzerland

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Integrated DNA Technologies has signed a distribution agreement with life science reagents supplier LubioScience to distribute the firm's genomics research products in Switzerland.

IDT has made its products available on the Swiss market for more than 10 years, the firm said, but the new distributorship allows researchers to order reagents from within the country and provides them with local customer care. LubioScience will distribute IDT's full range of reagents for genomics research, including custom oligonucleotides, products for next generation sequencing, CRISPR genome editing, qPCR, and RNA interference.

"We are pleased to partner with IDT, the world's leading manufacturer of custom nucleic acid products and genomics solutions," Daniel Auerbach, owner and managing director of LubioScience, said in a statement. "We look forward to offering researchers in Switzerland an even more comprehensive range of genomics products, as well as the scientific expertise to be able to recommend solutions that best suit their needs."
