Omaha, NE – Streck, Inc. and Nordic BioSite, a life sciences products distributor in Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Norway, have signed a distribution agreement for Streck’s full portfolio of cell stabilization, molecular and core 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 core product portfolio includes control products which test the performance and limits of instruments and reagents, helping laboratories meet regulatory and accreditation requirements.
