CHICAGO, IL (September 20, 2013) — GSL Biotech announced today that Transcriptic, a Silicon Valley company, has adopted SnapGene both for its in-house team of scientists and for use by its customers. Transcriptic is now providing customers with short-term access to SnapGene for use during the ordering process.
Max Hodak, President of Transcriptic, said, "We wanted a simple way for our customers to design and simulate In-Fusion cloning and Gibson Assembly with absolute certainty regarding the product they would receive from us. We found our solution in SnapGene." Cornelia Scheitz, Transcriptic Staff Scientist remarked, "We are getting great feedback on SnapGene from our customers, and the longer I use it for my own work, the more I love it."
Aline Glick, VP of Product Management for GSL Biotech said, "We have similar goals to Transcriptic, in that we are both invested in helping science move faster. I am thrilled that we have been able to work with Transcriptic to provide a time-reducing solution for them and their customers."
