Halo Genomics said this week that German reagent company Biozym Scientific will distribute its target enrichment kits in Germany and Austria, and will provide customer support in those areas.
Uppsala-based Halo Genomics provides reagent kits and services for targeted sequencing that are based on its Selector technology. The firm's SelectorKit enables customers to amplify up to 100 genes per reaction, and six gene panel kits focus on different sets of genes, for example the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes.
The company is currently working on a new product that combines target amplification with library prep for sequencing (IS 3/1/2011).
Last month, Halo Genomics signed distribution partnerships with Cambio, which will sell its products in the UK; and Integrated Sciences, which will offer them in Australia and New Zealand.
