Streck, Nordic BioSite Ink Distribution Deal

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Streck and Nordic BioSite have signed a distribution deal for Streck's full portfolio of cell stabilization, molecular, and core products.

Nordic BioSite is a life sciences products distributor in Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Norway.

Streck's cell stabilization products include Cell-Free DNA Urine Preserve, a formaldehyde-free liquid reagent that stabilizes cell-free DNA in urine; Cyto-Chex BCT, a blood collection tube for preserving whole blood specimens for immunophenotyping by flow cytometry; Cell-Free DNA BCTa direct-draw blood collection tube which stabilizes nucleated blood cells and prevents the release of genomic DNA, allowing isolation of cell-free DNA for a wide range of downstream applications; and Cell-Free RNA BCTa blood collection tube that stabilizes circulating RNA in plasma and prevents the release of non-target background RNA from blood cells during sample processing and storage.

"We are pleased to represent Streck throughout Scandinavia and the Baltic States and conveniently supply clinicians and life science researchers with Streck's product ranges," Nordic BioSite CEO Yvonne Zar said in a statement.
