"DIAGNOTEC carried out careful evaluation and validation before incorporating ZyGEM's simple but powerful nucleic acid extraction technology into our IPNV diagnostics, which will further enhance the speed of our analyses while maintaining the accuracy and performance of our approach," said DIAGNOTEC CEO Dr. Geraldine Mlynarz. "We view the availability of high quality, accessible diagnostics as critical to the control of diseases such as IPNV, which threaten both the economic health of farmers and the adequacy of the global food supply. We look forward to working with ZyGEM to make these tests available to fish farmers worldwide."
Mr. Kinnon added, "This collaboration is another example of the increasing success of our strategy of partnering with a diverse mix of leading firms around the globe. ZyGEM especially appreciates the role of New Zealand Trade Enterprise (NZTE) in introducing and supporting the two companies."
Neville Jordan, Chairman of the Board of ZyGEM, noted, "This partnership is another affirmation of ZyGEM's strategy to actively seek collaborations with a wide variety of international partners, and is in line with the company's expansion goals."
