NEW YORK — Precision Biomonitoring said today that it has partnered with Canadian agbio startup AgriSeq Solutions to offer genomic services that combine their respective technologies.
Under the terms of the deal, Precision Biomonitoring's Triplelock eDNA qPCR assay platform will be expanded to include AgriSeq's genotyping, data analysis, and genomics technologies for plant and animal breeding programs.
Additional terms were not disclosed.
"The eDNA platform solution that has been commercialized by Precision Biomonitoring allows innovative surveillance and early detection in many sectors," AgriSeq CEO Chris Grainger said in a statement. "There are vast opportunities to deploy a deep genomics platform in the agriculture and cannabis sectors, as well in genetic analysis for plant and animal breeding programs."
Earlier this year, Ontario-based Precision Biomonitoring partnered with Birks National Heritage Consultants to promote the eDNA technology.
