SAN DIEGO, March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TriLink BioTechnologies, Inc. (TriLink) announced that it has entered into a distribution agreement with TATAA Biocenter (TATAA) to sell its CleanAmp™ Products. The Scandinavian based TATAA develops and performs a broad spectrum of hands-on qPCR courses worldwide, in addition to providing tailor-made products for real-time PCR applications.
As an innovative approach to Hot Start PCR, TriLink's CleanAmp™ Product Line is an ideal complement to TATAA's product and service offerings. In developing CleanAmp™, TriLink applied its expertise in modified nucleic acid chemistry to resolve common PCR problems, such as primer dimer formation and mis-priming. This advancement in Hot Start technology employs two widely ignored components of the PCR reagent mix: the primers and the dNTPs. The latest addition to the CleanAmp™ Product Line will be new, improved CleanAmp™ dNTPs, which will be available in April 2011. The latest advancement in CleanAmp™ dNTP chemistry allows improved amplicon yield in endpoint PCR and earlier Cq values in fast cycling real-time PCR.
"TATAA has established itself as a thought leader in the field of real-time PCR, and we are excited about the opportunity to expose our CleanAmp™ technology to the international research community through its training courses. We are confident that TATAA and its clients will be pleased with the results they see using CleanAmp™ Products," stated TriLink's President and CEO, Richard Hogrefe.
"The CleanAmp™ hot-start technique developed at TriLink is so much more versatile and easy to implement compared to alternatives, and being supported by our application specialists, we expect it will become a most popular product," says Mikael Kubista, founder and CEO of TATAA Biocenter.
TriLink manufactures custom oligonucleotides, modified nucleoside triphosphates and CleanAmp™ PCR products for the research, diagnostic and OEM markets. In addition, custom chemistry, contract research services and ISO/QSR compliant cGMP production facilities are offered. TriLink's solutions help advance drug discovery and biomedical research.
