TAmiRNA partners with BioCat to open up new international markets
Vienna, Austria: Biotech and diagnostic innovator TAmiRNA has signed a distribution agreement with Heidelberg-based innovative life sciences research supplier BioCat GmbH that covers TAmiRNA products and CRO services.
BioCat, located in the Heidelberg Technology Park in close proximity to the German Cancer Research Center, offers a wide range of high-quality research reagents and instruments as well as cutting-edge technologies in the fields of genomics, proteomics and cell biology fueling science in academia as well as in pharma & biotech industry.
Opening new markets
The distribution agreement will enable clients to get faster access to TAmiRNA products and services via the BioCat network. This will open up new markets for TAmiRNA in countries, where it has not yet been active and strengthen its reach in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
The partnership will include TAmiRNA’s recently developed miND® microRNA Next-Generation-Sequencing Discovery Assay pipeline that offers an innovative workflow for absolute quantification of microRNAs (miRNAs) and small RNAs in any biological sample or species, including extracellular vesicles/exosomes. The technology is based on TAmiRNA’s novel panel of exogenous small RNA spike-in controls that enables quality control and absolute quantitation of NGS data. This technology will soon become available to the small RNA research community as a stand-alone product called miND® spike-ins.
TAmiRNA co-founder and CEO, Dr. Matthias Hackl, commented: “We are very pleased to be working in partnership with BioCat, which is one of the most innovative and highly respected suppliers of high quality research materials and services to the life sciences community in Europe.”
Dr. Sieke Schaepe, Head of Inside Sales and Product Management at BioCat GmbH, added: “We are delighted to be able to add TAmiRNA’s highly innovative and distinctive offerings to our portfolio. This strengthens our own range of offerings and allows TAmiRNA to reach new research communities internationally, making this agreement a real win-win for both partners.”
