Agilent, IDT Ink Co-Marketing Agreement for qPCR Products

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Agilent Technologies and Integrated DNA Technologies today announced a co-marketing agreement for qPCR products.

The agreement covers Agilent's Mx3005P qPCR system and Brilliant qPCR reagents and IDT's PrimeTime qPCR assays.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

In a statement, Scott O'Brien, product line manager for Agilent's genomic division, said, "The partnership provides the benefit of performing 5' nuclease probe assays with qPCR reagents that have been extensively tested against competitor reagents and assays."

Coupling PrimeTime qPCR assays with the Brilliant master mix will enable researchers to expand the scope of their research, the two firms said in a joint statement, and added that the combination "will provide an excellent tool for validating discoveries resulting from next-generation sequencing and copy number variation studies."

The Scan

LINE-1 Linked to Premature Aging Conditions

Researchers report in Science Translational Medicine that the accumulation of LINE-1 RNA contributes to premature aging conditions and that symptoms can be improved by targeting them.

Team Presents Cattle Genotype-Tissue Expression Atlas

Using RNA sequences representing thousands of cattle samples, researchers looked at relationships between cattle genotype and tissue expression in Nature Genetics.

Researchers Map Recombination in Khoe-San Population

With whole-genome sequences for dozens of individuals from the Nama population, researchers saw in Genome Biology fine-scale recombination patterns that clustered outside of other populations.

Myotonic Dystrophy Repeat Detected in Family Genome Sequencing Analysis

While sequencing individuals from a multi-generation family, researchers identified a myotonic dystrophy type 2-related short tandem repeat in the European Journal of Human Genetics.
