Digilab Genomic Solutions and CyBio Collaborate on Manufacture and Supply of Dispensing Instruments

  • Digilab Genomic Solutions (DGS) and CyBio inked deals to combine dispensing technologies and that will make DGS a supplier of certain parts.

    Under the distribution and supply arrangement, DGS and CyBio will together manufacture and distribute DGS’ Hummingbird-Plus parallel pipetting instrument for ultralow-volume range applications (down to 25 nL). Digilab will supply Hummingbird® dispensing heads and cassettes, both in 96 and 384-well format. CyBio will then manufacture and integrate the product with its modular CyBi®-Well automation platform. Digilab will own worldwide distribute rights for the Hummingbird-Plus instruments.

    In addition the firms entered a license and supply agreement, under which DGS will license intellectual property related to dispensing heads for use in connection with CyBio’s CyBi-Well vario instrument. Additionally, DGS will manufacture and supply the capillary cassettes for the CyBi-Well vario instrument.
