M2 PHARMA-September 26, 2011-Biotec, Affymetrix ink agreement for SAP enzyme deliveries(C)2011 M2 COMMUNICATIONS
26 September 2011 - Norwegian biopharmaceutical company Biotec Pharmacon ASA (OSL:BIOTEC) said yesterday that its unit ArcticZymes AS and US DNA microarrays maker Affymetrix Inc (NASDAQ:AFFX) had entered into a new non-exclusive supply agreement for deliveries of ArcticZymes' enzyme Shrimp Alkaline Phosphatase (SAP).
Previously, Affymetrix had an exclusive right to distribute SAP. The current agreement allows ArcticZymes to offer SAP to other customers. However, it provides Affymetrix with a secure long-term supply of the enzyme at competitive prices by December 2017.
Currently, ArcticZymes is working to build SAP's distribution organisation and to increase sales and marketing capabilities as the enzyme continues to be its top-selling product accounting for the majority of its total sales.
