Shoreline offers all-in-one microbiome assay kits, as well as related analysis software, designed to work on long-read Pacific Biosciences and Oxford Nanopore sequencing platforms and Illumina's short-read sequencing platform.

Under the terms of the deal, Denmark-based AH will distribute Shoreline's products in Denmark, Iceland, Sweden, Finland, and Norway. Additional terms were not disclosed.

Last month, Farmington, Connecticut-based Shoreline inked a distribution deal covering sub-Saharan Africa with Inqaba Biotechnical Industries.
