Covaris Inc., signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Alliance Global to bring their tools and technologies for pre-analytical sample preparation to the markets of Middle East, Africa and parts of Central Asia.
Covaris Focused-ultrasonicators are engineered to deliver highly-controlled and focused acoustic energy to samples in a temperature-controlled and non-contact environment. Focused-ultrasonicators standardize sample preparation for a variety of application areas that include DNA shearing for Next-Generation Sequencing, RNA and protein extraction, chromatin shearing, cell lysis, tissue to biomarker, compound management, formulations, and more.
“Covaris fits perfectly into the Genomics portfolio at Alliance Global, allowing us to offer a complete solution to our customers” said Althea Fernandes, Product Manager for the Genomics division at Alliance Global Group.
The range of Focused-ultrasonicators available covers sample preparation needs from high throughout batch processing to benchtop units, facilitating AGBL to not only serve high volume biomedical laboratories, but smaller laboratories as well.
“Alliance Global brings unique commercial advantages to the Middle East and Africa markets, and we are excited to be working with them to bring innovative solutions to their customers” said Guillaume Durin, General Manager at Covaris Ltd.
Covaris is dedicated to accelerating discoveries in life sciences and bioanalysis by developing “best practices” sample preparation tools.
