Roche Applied Science Selects NuGEN WT-Ovation™ as RNA-Amplification Product for LightCycler® System

  • Roche Applied Science and NuGEN Technologies entered into an agreement that will enable Roche to market and sell an RNA-amplification product based on the technology of  NuGEN’s WT-Ovation™. The new product, called LightCycler® RNA Pre-Amplification Kit, is scheduled to be released in the third quarter.

    The LightCycler® RNA Pre-Amplification Kit will allow researchers to conduct whole-transcriptome gene-expression analysis of clinical samples such as those archived for years in clinical repositories, according to Roche.

    The coexclusive agreement calls for NuGEN to supply components for the LightCycler RNA Pre-Amplification Kit and provides Roche with limited access to the technology of NuGEN’s WT-Ovation.
