Spotlight on DNA Genotek's Newest Partners

DNA Genotek partner logoIn November of 2009, DNA Genotek announced their new global partner program. The program is designed to help partners scale and differentiate themselves in the genomics market. The DNA Genotek Partner Program is open to technology vendors as well as genomics and diagnostic service providers who have demonstrated capabilities in providing services for our sample collection products.

The DNA Genotek Partner Program is designed to help connect our customers with an approved service provider to process Oragene samples. Key to the program is our ability to provide customers with confidence of compatibility with a full range of downstream processing and analysis solutions offered by multiple technology vendors.

Since the launch of this program, 15 new companies have successfully completed validation of DNA Genotek products with their service or product offering. These companies are from a variety of countries and are available to help our customers process DNA saliva samples.
