NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – VHLGenetics today announced a deal to resell GeneSeek's genomic tests for profiling farm animals, such as cattle, horses, and pigs.
The deal was forged with GeneSeek's parent firm Neogen and provides Dutch firm VHLGenetics access to the GeneSeek Genomic Profiler product line, which includes tests for determining animal parentage and for detecting important genetic traits and diseases. VHLGenetics said it recently acquired an Illumina HiScan platform, allowing it to offer GeneSeek's Genomic Profiler products in Europe.
"We anticipate that this agreement will assist in our approach to further develop the one-stop shop possibilities of genome testing in non-human applications," VHLGenetics CEO Wim van Haeringen said in a statement.
Financial and other terms were not disclosed.
