MADISON, Wisconsin – October 14, 2013 – Today, DNASTAR® announced that it will be providing free software to any individual or organization that needs it during the US federal government shutdown, which has prevented many scientists from accessing Lasergene software that is critical to their ongoing research. The offer is open to DNASTAR customers and non-customers alike.

Tom Schwei, Vice President and General Manager of DNASTAR, commented, “Even though funding is frozen for many scientists, they are interested and motivated to continue their important research during the ongoing government shutdown. These scientists are being hurt unnecessarily by something out of their control. As soon as we learned that individuals could not access their software, it was obvious to us that we could help; so we did. We are pleased to make this offer available to anyone who has been put into this difficult situation, regardless of whether or not they are current DNASTAR customers.”

Dr. Brenda Oppert, Adjunct Professor at the Kansas State University Department of Entomology, commented, "I wanted to express my appreciation for the cooperation that I received from DNASTAR to help me keep my research going during the furlough. After asking for help with access, I received a response within hours with links to my licenses. This kind of response is the norm with your staff-they are always there to help me solve problems!"
