RevoluGen Signs Taiwan Distribution Deal for DNA Extraction Product

NEW YORK — UK reagent firm RevoluGen said on Monday that it has signed a deal with Welgene Biotech to distribute its Fire Monkey/Fire Flower High Molecular Weight DNA (HMW-DNA) extraction and purification product in Taiwan.

Under the terms of the deal, Taipei City-based Welgene has the nonexclusive right to promote, market, and sell RevoluGen's product to its molecular biology customers in Taiwan. Additional terms were not disclosed.

Fire Monkey/Fire Flower uses spin columns to extract HMW-DNA with an average length of 100 kb or more from animal and bacterial cells, followed by the removal of DNA fragments smaller than 10 kb, according to RevoluGen.

Earlier this year, RevoluGen signed a nonexclusive manufacturing deal for Fire Monkey/Fire Flower with GE Healthcare Life Sciences, and last year, it signed a nonexclusive worldwide distribution agreement for the product with Merck KGaA.
