Norgen Biotek signed an OEM and supply agreement with Exiqon related to RNA purification kits. The agreement will expand Exiqon's product portfolio of miRNA analysis services.
Norgen's Total RNA Purification and FFPE RNA Extraction kits isolate total RNA, miRNA, cytoplasmic, and nuclear RNA without the use of phenol extraction steps.
These will be integrated with Exiqon's miRCURY LNA (locked nucleic acid) product line, which includes an expression-profiling array system, detection probes, knockdown products, and a PCR system.
"Adding these products to our miRCURY LNA product line is an important step in order to broaden our product portfolio and to fulfill our ambition of being a total solution provider in the field of miRNA analysis," says Henrik M. Pfundheller, vp of sales and marketing for Exiqon.
