Eurofins Genomics and AmpTec Close Distribution Agreement
News Jul 02, 2014
Eurofins Genomics and AmpTec have agreed on non-exclusively co-marketing AmpTec's IVT-RNAs globally.
The co-marketing agreement for IVT ssRNAs, dsRNAs and mRNAs includes RNAs up to several thousand bases and a wide range of modifications.
All nucleic acid products are offered at research grade in compliance with regulations of ISO13485 and at Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) grade on request, in order to assure highest product quality and regulatory compliance.
The partnership will deliver premium synthetic ssRNAs, dsRNAs and mRNAs that are widely used in a variety of applications from in vitro diagnostics of pathogens and detection of rare gene mutants to the rapidly growing field of companion diagnostics.
Together, the two companies will serve an international market with their combined custom services for synthetic genes and for very long synthetic RNAs.
"The cooperation will allow us to broaden Eurofins' portfolio with innovative nucleic acid products. By sharing best practices, clients will benefit from an unparalleled spectrum of custom services for IVT-RNAs, which in turn should fuel further market share growth for both partners.", says Bruno Poddevin, Senior Vice-President Eurofins Genomics.
"Eurofins' broad expertise in nucleic acid chemistry is a perfect fit for our RNA technology portfolio", says Guido Krupp, President of AmpTec. "Eurofins' emphasis on direct and flexible interaction is very important for us" confirms Peter Scheinert, CSO of AmpTec. "With this agreement, our long-term partnership will reach new levels of market awareness and international recognition."
Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing GenesNews
Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.

Single Gene Change in Gut Bacteria Alters Host MetabolismNews
Scientists have found that deleting a single gene in a particular strain of gut bacteria causes changes in metabolism and reduced weight gain in mice. The research provides an important step towards understanding how the microbiome – the bacteria that live in our body – affects metabolism.READ MORE
