Sigma-Aldrich extends distribution agreements with Genewiz and Begbroke Science Park tenant Oxford Genetics

ox gen logoLab chemical and life sciences company Sigma-Aldrich Corporation has extended its distribution agreements with Genewiz and Oxford Genetics for providing a speedy web-based ordering process for most synthetic DNA to customers.

This eCommerce platform from Sigma-Aldrich will enable scientists to place orders for synthesized genes from Genewiz in addition to getting them delivered in a SnapFast vector from Oxford Genetics. This will further save time for end-users, eliminating the need to wait for a quote.

According to Josef Zihlmann, Vice President of Product Management and R&D for Sigma-Aldrich, researchers buying synthetic biology or gene synthesis services frequently rely on a quoting system which delays orders by more than 24 hours. Sigma-Aldrich’s eCommerce platform unites Genewiz’s synthesized gene services and Oxford Genetics’ SnapFast technology to provide a time as well as cost-saving solution to researchers.

Oxford Genetics was founded in 2011 by Professor Leonard Seymour and  Ryan Cawood of Oxford University with the aim to revolutionise DNA design, optimisation and assembly to enable molecular engineering to fulfil its promise in synthetic biology and medicine. In 2015 Oxford Genetics moved its operations into the Centre for Innovation and Enterprise at Oxford University’s Begbroke Science Park.
