11/17/2010 2:10:37 PM

Konstanz, Germany, November 17, 2010 / b3c newswire / – GATC Biotech’s new sequencing laboratory will be their second in Germany and will be located in the Life Science Center Düsseldorf. Through the new facilities, scientists from Northern Germany and adjacent countries will benefit from GATC Biotech’s special overnight service, called NightXpress, which was first introduced in 2007. This single sample sequencing service reduces delivery times close to half a day from sample collection. The new laboratory will be subject to the same stringent quality standards and automation as the laboratories in GATC Biotech’s headquarters in Constance (Germany). It will start operations on January 4, 2011. Jochen Schäfer, Director Custom Sequencing at GATC Biotech, comments: “We see a growing need in providing sequencing services with shortest turnaround times, therefore it is essential to be closer to our customers. The Life Science Center Düsseldorf just offers the perfect infrastructure and geographic location.”
