NEW YORK — Sage Science said on Monday that it has signed an agreement to distribute Universal Sequencing Technology's Transposase Enzyme Linked Long-read sequencing (TELL-Seq) kits in the US.
Specific terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The kits "can be used to barcode molecules for linked-read analysis that makes it possible to characterize long-range information from short-read sequencing platforms," according to Beverly, Massachusetts-based Sage.
Sage said it will distribute the kits to biologists, including users of its HLS-CATCH technique for targeting and analyzing large genomic elements.
"By distributing TELL-Seq kits to our SageHLS users and other researchers, we can leverage the enormous installed base of short-read sequencers and empower genomic scientists to produce long-range genomic data," Sage CSO Chris Boles said in a statement.
Last month, Canton, Massachusetts-based Universal Sequencing Technology signed an agreement under which Golden Gateway Partners is distributing the TELL-Seq kits in Australia.
