News Feb 13, 2012
Anachem Ltd. has announced that it has now been awarded exclusive UK distribution rights for the novel range of molecular engineered reagents from KAPA Biosystems Inc., (Woburn, MA USA).
Having become a trusted supplier to UK Life Science Research customers over the last 40 years, Anachem provides the perfect partner for further adoption of KAPA’s advanced technology products.
“Anachem’s large, enthusiastic team of specialist representatives is best served to support KAPA’s product range. We visit scientists in molecular laboratories every day and alongside our liquid handling products have been advising them on PCR consumables for many years,” says Amy Jingzi Liu, Anachem Product Manager.
Liu continued, “We have already built a foundation of awareness and technology acceptance for KAPA in the UK, but under the exclusive agreement and with exciting new products continually being released, are very confident that we will deliver rapid additional growth.”
The KAPA Biosystems molecular evolution technology platform is currently being used to optimize enzymes for DNA amplification, next-generation DNA sequencing, and molecular diagnostic applications.
These designer enzymes are enabling new and improved applications that were not previously possible with generalist, wild-type enzymes.
“KAPA fits Anachem’s model of partnering with innovative, value added suppliers and will further strengthen our parent company’s growth in the Life Science market” says Carole Staniford, Anachem Marketing Director.
