Mawi DNA Technologies Announces Partnership With Nucleus Biotech

HAYWARD, Calif.–()–Mawi DNA Technologies has signed a distribution agreement with Nucleus Biotech to deliver Mawi’s iSWAB biosampling technologies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

“Nucleus Biotech has a strong and complementary portfolio to Mawi’s and is located in a key European biotech hub. Expanding our international presence is a key strategic component of Mawi’s next phase of growth,” says Jerome David, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Mawi DNA Technologies. “We believe partnering with Nucleus Biotech will help us achieve this objective.”

“With Mawi’s iSWAB technology, we have found the perfect solution for our customers performing molecular analysis studies with human and animal samples,” said Nucleus Biotech’s Managing Director Michael Ehret. ”iSWAB enables non-invasive, location-independent collection of any biosample (DNA, RNA, proteins, cells, microbiomes) without having to worry about sample stability and integrity. Both are critical for sensitive applications such as next generation sequencing and quantitative polymerase chain reaction, a technology used for measuring DNA.”
