Kloning och genmanipulation – när tekniken tänjer gränserna för vad som är möjligt

Vi lever i en spännande tid där genombrott inom genteknik avslöjar såväl vår historia som öppnar nya möjligheter att skapa vår framtid. I ett samtal om genetikens vidunderliga möjligheter berörs både det som sker nu men också vad som väntar i en snar framtid alltifrån kloning och genmanipulation till att designa eftersökta egenskaper och reparera foster.

TATAA Biocenter to Distribute Swift Biosciences NGS Products in Europe

9th March

Distribute NGS Products in Europe – Swift Biosciences and TATAA Biocenter Announce Strategic PartnershipSwift Biosciences Logo 01a - 2 Color

TATAA Biocenter also to introduce Swift Biosciences’ NGS products in its popular NGS training courses

Ann Arbor, Michigan and Göteborg, Sweden 1st March 2016 – Swift Biosciences, a U.S-based company specializing in sample preparation for next generation sequencing (NGS), announces their partnership with TATAA Biocenter, the world´s foremost organizer of hands-on training in molecular diagnostics and Europe´s leading provider of genomic services. This strategic partnership will expand both Swift’s and TATAA’s presence in Europe through TATAA Biocenter’s distribution and support of Swift’s NGS products in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic. TATAA will also incorporate Swift’s NGS products in their popular NGS training courses offered throughout the year in various European locations.

Kristina Lind, Coordinator of TATAA Biocenter’s hands-on training program, stated, “We always seek collaboration with the best solution providers for our training courses and Swift Biociences are top of the class for NGS library preparations.” Mikael Kubista, President of TATAA Biocenter, added, “Our customers request professional tools for the entire NGS workflow from sample preparation and quality control to library preparation, sequencing, and data analysis. With Swift´s library kits, we can help our customers obtain larger yields and greater sequence coverage from small volume samples like FFPE and liquid biopsies.”

Swift Biosciences will provide reagents and support to Tataa Biocenter for their educational course concerning NGS applications, as well as technical expertise for TATAA’s role as a partner of the Cancer_ID Consortium in Europe. Tataa Biocenter’s focus in the consortium is on microRNA and some analysis of circulating tumor cells (CTC’s).

This strategic partnership helps expand the utility of Swift Biosciences’ NGS sample products into key applications, such as liquid biopsy analysis, for European end-users. Timothy Harkins, President and CEO of Swift, stated, “We are pleased to be partnering with an elite organization like TATAA Biocenter to train end users on the value of our differentiated product lines. Enabling researchers to gain valuable information from precious samples like CTC’s and cfDNA is at the core of our organization and working with TATAA will help deliver these valuable solutions to more individuals.”
