BEVERLY, Mass., Feb. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- seqWell™ announced agreements to bring plexWell™ technology and products for multiplexed NGS applications to global markets, setting up an international distribution network via partnerships covering fifteen (15) countries in Asia-Pacific Rim, Europe and the Middle East. plexWell's normalizing iterative barcoding library preparation technology affords the creation of balanced multiplexed NGS library pools without the need for sample input or NGS library normalization. plexWell products address the growing need to multiplex up to hundreds or thousands of samples on a single NGS run while minimizing index hopping and maximizing the efficiency of each sequencing run.
According to seqWell's Founder and CEO, Joseph Mellor, "plexWell products have generated compelling results from customers both for established applications such as microbial genome and amplicon sequencing, as well as exciting emerging applications such as single-cell RNA-seq and low-pass whole genome sequencing. It's time to expand our global commercial reach, and enable more researchers to eliminate time consuming and costly steps to normalize libraries and obtain better efficiency on their sequencing runs."
seqWell's exclusive distribution partnerships include:
- Custom Science (Australia)
- Beijing Pukairui Biotech Co., Ltd. (China)
- Thunder Bioscience (Korea)
- Custom Science Auckland (New Zealand)
- Sciencewerke Pte Ltd (Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia)
- Sopachem BV (Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark)
- Zotal Ltd. (Israel)
- Labtech International Ltd. (United Kingdom, Ireland)
- Nippon Genetics Europe (Germany, Austria)
Erick Suh, who leads seqWell's commercial growth, said, "Expanding our global reach through strong regional partners is a key step to our strategy and commercial expansion. It's crucial to get our products into the hands of researchers at the major genome sequencing centers around the world to fully realize the potential of the plexWell technology. It's also important to obtain feedback from these key opinion leaders on current and future products. We are planning to further expand our commercial footprint and presence in the coming months to better serve our customers and prepare for the next wave of products."
