Sigma-Aldrich to Distribute LGC KASP Genotyping Assays

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – LGC said today that it has appointed Sigma-Aldrich as the exclusive global distributor of its off-the-shelf KASP Genotyping Assays.

The three-year deal includes more than 100,000 pre-designed assays for public domain human SNPs. In addition, Sigma-Aldrich will non-exclusively distribute LGC's KASP MasterMix reagents, custom KASP Laboratory Validated Assays, and custom KASP Designed Assays, LGC said.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

"Through this new agreement, Sigma-Aldrich will leverage highly complementary product lines and allow access to thousands of validated KASP Assays to a global market," Marcus Wills, commercial director for genomics at LGC, said in a statement. The agreement, he added, "covers assays for genetic variation in humans, as well as planned future additions supporting plant and animal genomics and breeding."
