Integrated DNA Technologies Acquires Synthegen
News Feb 02, 2006
Illustrating its commitment to continued growth, this latest acquisition by Coralville, Iowa based IDT further expands the company’s expertise in the synthesis of modified oligonucleotides.
The acquisition of Synthegen follows IDT’s recent purchase of San Diego, CA based GenBase, Inc. and the opening of the company’s first satellite production center.
"Synthegen has developed significant skills and abilities that target the specialty oligo market," said Integrated DNA Technologies, Inc. COO Trey Martin.
"This acquisition allows us to merge that expertise with IDT’s industry-leading quality and QC systems."
"It also brings the Synthegen product range to a wider market, and ensures that our customers continue to benefit from the widest selection, highest service level, and most reliable and consistent delivery of custom oligos available anywhere."
"Our success over the last 10 years clearly played a central role in the development of this deal," said David Colvin, president of Synthegen.
"And as our customer segment is smaller and more specialized than IDT’s, we were delighted to discover that they share our belief that the customer is the most important part of what we do."
"We know that the needs of our clients will be well served, and that this deal will deliver significant benefits for them."
Colvin is working with Integrated DNA Technologies, Inc. to support the seamless transition of the Synthegen product line into IDT’s portfolio.
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
