DNA amplification

The financing will support the company as it works to expand its diagnostic products for non-invasive early detection and monitoring of cancers.

Denmark-based Arcedi would like to commercialize its technology through a major diagnostic company.

The selective whole-genome amplification approach was successfully adapted to Plasmodium vivax, a parasite that is notoriously difficult to culture.

Following a recent acquisition in the proteomics space and several distribution deals, Sygnis has developed its first liquid biopsy product to be launched later this year.

Tataa will distribute the single-cell whole-genome amplification products in Sweden, Norway, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic.

The deal gives Australian distributor GeneWorks rights to promote, market, and sell all current and future products in Sygnis' portfolio.

The wholly-owned subsidiary, XCR Dx, will make a portable handheld instrument to use assays built on Fluoresentric's proprietary DNA amplification chemistry.

D-Mark will market and sell Sygnis' TruePrime Single Cell WGA kit, which eliminates the need for synthetic random primers.
