Thermo Fisher Scientific has signed an agreement with sample collection company COPAN Italia for exclusive global distribution rights to its DNA sampling technology.

This latest agreement is for COPAN Italia's Card Processing Automation (CPA) technology, which is designed to prepare DNA samples for human identification in forensic, paternity and research laboratories. It builds on a 2012 agreement between COPIA Italia and Life Technologies, which is now owned by Thermo Fisher, under which Life Technologies became the sole global distributor for COPAN Italia's NUCLEIC-CARD DNA Collection System, a chemically-treated sample collection matrix that lyses cells and preserves DNA spotted onto a paper substrate.

'Our distribution agreement for the CPA technology is designed to strengthen our customers’ ability to do their important work within the most streamlined workflow possible,' said Nadia Altomare, vice president and general manager, human identification, for Thermo Fisher Scientific. 'The CPA300 and CPA200 instruments, combined with the NUCLEIC-CARD system, means sample preparation can now be more efficient, which enable seamless integration with our downstream forensic sample analysis solutions.'
