DNAStar has extended its existing 10-year distribution agreement with GATC Biotech, who will continue to distribute DNAStar’s products in Germancy, France, Switzerland and Austria.
GATC also provides DNA sequencing services – a rapidly expanding business - and has obtained a site licence of all DNAStar as part of the agreement.
Elke Decker, senior director of marketing for GATC commented: ‘It is important for us to use the software we distribute in our laboratories, too. Naturally, we require comprehensive, easy-to-use and up-to-date bioinformatics tools.’
Specific terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
