Sigma-Aldrich to Distribute TriLink PCR Reagents


TriLink Biotechnologies said this week that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Sigma-Aldrich to sell TriLink's CleanAmp dNTPs globally.

Designed for hot-start PCR, CleanAmp dNTPs are an "ideal complement to Sigma-Aldrich's product and service offerings," TriLink said in a statement.

The CleanAmp products resolve common PCR problems such as primer-dimer formation and mispriming, the company said. Most recently, improvements to CleanAmp dNTP chemistry allow improved amplicon yield in endpoint PCR and earlier Cq values in fast cycling real-time PCR, the company said.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
