Bio-Rad and Integrated DNA Technologies to Co-Develop RNAi Tools

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Bio-Rad Laboratories and Integrated DNA Technologies plan to co-develop RNAi tool sets, Bio-Rad said today.

 
The companies will deliver IDT's Dicer-Substrate 27-mer siRNA duplexes for RNAi applications. Under the agreement, Bio-Rad will experimentally validate Dicer-Substrate siRNA duplexes in live cells.
 
Bio-Rad has exclusive rights to sell the Dicer-Substrate siRNAs that it tests and validates.
