NEW YORK ─ Thomas Scientific said on Tuesday that it has inked a strategic distribution agreement with Agilent Technologies that expands its molecular biology product portfolio.
Under the deal, Thomas Scientific will provide its customers with access to more than 700 bioreagent products from the genomics division of Santa Clara, California-based Agilent, including qPCR instruments, PCR enzymes, and other molecular biology reagents. To help satisfy growing demands from high complexity laboratories, Agilent's CRISPR libraries will also be available through Thomas Scientific.
Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Swedesboro, New Jersey-based Thomas Scientific noted that from the time of its acquisition by the Carlyle Group in 2017, it has completed four strategic acquisitions that have helped it expand the reach of its distribution network. It also has other distribution agreements, including with MicroGEM, Reditus Laboratories, and Microbix Biosystems.
