NEW YORK — BioSkryb said on Monday that it has hired contract manufacturing firm Argonaut Manufacturing Services to help scale its genomic amplification system.
Founded in 2018, Durham, North Carolina-based BioSkryb develops sample preparation kits based on primary template-directed amplification chemistry exclusively licensed from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Under the terms of the deal, Argonaut will manufacture and assemble kits and reagents for BioSkryb for use in its R&D, clinical research, and commercial systems beginning in the second quarter. Additional terms were not disclosed.
"Argonaut's capabilities, in terms of cost-efficiency, scale-up, and quality, is what has attracted us to partner with them," BioSkryb CEO Jay West said in a statement. "We are thrilled to utilize Argonaut as a long-term partner to scale up our production to meet growing customer demand."
