NEW YORK – Universal Sequencing Technology (UST) said on Tuesday that Golden Gateway Partners will distribute its Transposase Enzyme Linked Long-read sequencing (TELL-Seq) kit in Australia.
Under the exclusive deal, Golden Gateway Partners will offer the Tell-Seq whole-genome sequencing library prep kit, which helps users generate long linked reads from short sequence reads. Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"Golden Gateway Partners are experienced in assisting startup life science tools companies to grow commercially in the Asia Pacific region," UST said in a statement. "With a unique business model that enables a single distribution channel across the entire Asia Pacific region combined with UST's breakthrough technology, it created an ideal opportunity to develop a partnership."
UST, founded by next-generation sequencing industry veterans and based in Canton, Massachusetts, is offering the library prep kit while it builds a proprietary long-read sequencing platform.
