Streck, Inc. and Genomax Technologies, a life sciences products distributor in Singapore and Malaysia, have signed a distribution agreement for Streck’s cell stabilization and molecular products.
Streck’s cell stabilization products include Cell-Free DNA Urine Preserve, a formaldehyde-free liquid reagent that stabilizes cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in urine; Cyto-Chex® BCT, a blood collection tube for the preservation of whole blood specimens for immunophenotyping by flow cytometry; Cell-Free DNA BCT®, a direct-draw blood collection tube which stabilizes nucleated blood cells and prevents the release of genomic DNA, allowing isolation of high-quality cell-free DNA for a wide range of downstream applications commonly used in clinical research studies, drug discovery and diagnostic assay development; and Cell-Free RNA BCT®, a blood collection tube with a patented preservative which stabilizes circulating RNA in plasma and prevents the release of non-target background RNA from blood cells during sample processing and storage.
Streck’s Molecular Products division is focused on the generation of rapid diagnostic tools that impact healthcare decisions. Streck’s molecular product line includes the ARM-D® Kits for the detection of antibiotic resistance genes by multiplex real-time PCR and the soon-to-launch rapid real-time PCR instrument, the Zulu RT™, capable of 40 cycle reactions in 20 minutes or less. In addition, Streck is developing a library of diagnostics tools that will soon be available in Singapore, Malaysia and the rest of the world.
“Streck’s cell stabilization products are the gold standard and market leader for cell-free applications, “ said Linsheng Wong, Managing Director at Genomax Technologies. “We are delighted to represent Streck in Singapore and Malaysia to enable clinicians and life science researchers to conveniently access Streck’s cell stabilization products. In addition, Streck’s innovative molecular products will help to address the needs of clinical laboratories for rapid and robust molecular diagnostics assay.”
