NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — Dutch laboratory equipment supplier Bioké announced today that it has signed an agreement to exclusively distribute Ireland-based Syntec's Medimachine line of semi-automated homogenizer products in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Syntec's Medimachine product line includes the Medimachine II instrument for gentle tissue dissociation and fine homogenization. "The improved Medimachine II and corresponding consumables can be used for both dissociation of tissues into single-cell suspensions and for mechanical disaggregation of solid animal or plant tissues for flow cytometric analysis, cell culture, or DNA amplification techniques," Syntec Managing Director Ray Sinnott said in a statement. "This makes the Medimachine II the most versatile semi-automated homogenizer on the market."
Earlier this year, Bioké acquired the rights to distribute Namocell's Namo Single Cell Dispenser tool in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg. It has also recently signed similar deals for Bethyl Laboratories' catalogue of products and Acea Biosciences' xCelligence cell analyzer.
