GENTBRUGGE, Belgium, June 6, 2013 – Trinean, the leading provider of microfluidic spectrophotometry platforms, today announced it has entered into a long-term agreement with Bayer CropScience to supply DropSense96 and Xpose droplet readers along with its proprietary cDrop spectral analysis software to Bayer CropScience's global operations. Bayer CropScience will be using Trineans technology for High Throughput quantification and quality control of isolated biomolecules to assure robust outcome of genetic tests in its molecular breeding program.
“Trinean is delighted to be a global supplier to Bayer CropScience. Our microfluidic technology matches the expectations of Bayer CropScience in terms of automation, minimal sample consumption and accurate quantification of a broad range of plant extracts.” said Yvan Sergeant, VP commercial operations of Trinean. “We are committed to helping Bayer CropScience reach its high standards in the genetic research and high-quality seeds for field and vegetable crops.”
A real challenge exists for all plant genetic labs to accurately quantify nucleic acid extracts from plant tissue due to variations in genome size and the presence of co-purified buffer components or plant metabolites influencing both the quantification result as well as downstream genetic tests. Unlike traditional methods, the Trinean technology performs an in-depth sample content analysis by profiling the measured UV/VIS absorbance spectrum for both the biomolecule of interest and interfering chemicals. This approach allows specific concentration determination and genuine purity analysis within a simple ‘drop & read’ approach.
