Agilent has provided molecular biology tools since it acquired Stratagene in 2007. Its products address the entire workflow for molecular and synthetic biology, and SureVector expands this portfolio. Eurofins Genomics provides DNA sequencing services, genotyping services, DNA synthesis products and bioinformatics services.
Components of the SureVector system are functional DNA modules that can be rapidly combined to assemble into vectors, which biologists can do in less than 30 minutes, according to the company. The newly released kits contain standard parts for mammalian, E. coli and yeast cells, with Eurofins offering the ability to create custom components for any organism.
“SureVector is part of Agilent’s continued commitment to providing revolutionary tools for molecular biology,” said Alessandro Borsatti, head of genomics marketing for Agilent. “The Eurofins collaboration is an exciting step forward for SureVector. It allows us to offer customers individual vectors or the ability to customize any fragment in the SureVector system.”
“SureVector is an ideal addition to Eurofins Genomics’ gene synthesis and GeneStrands services,” said Uwe Koehler, head of Gene Synthesis and Molecular Biology for Eurofins Genomics. “In this exclusive collaboration, Eurofins Genomics can now offer tailor-made SureVector plasmids, and any component of the SureVector kit can be replaced with customer-specific elements.”
