ST. JOSEPH, Mich., Jan. 7 -- GeneGo, Inc., the leading systems biology tools company, announced today that they have launched easy access to many Sigma Aldrich life science and chemistry products from their "Drug Details" pages in three products: MetaCore 6.0, MetaDrug and Eureka!  This new capability allows customers to retrieve comprehensive information on drugs and compounds and make one-click purchases all from one centralized location. Such efficiency tools are crucial to busy bench scientists.

"It's critical that Sigma Aldrich has a presence throughout all stages of an experiment's life cycle," said Nathan Allen, Market Segment Manager, Sigma Aldrich.  "By incorporating our products into MetaCore, MetaDrug, and Eureka! we ensure that researchers have easy access to Sigma Aldrich products presented in the appropriate context during the initial stages of experiment preparation."

"We have many mutual customers requesting easy access to product vendors such as Sigma Aldrich, so it was the logical thing to do," said Julie Bryant, GeneGo's VP of Business development. "In a typical workflow, our users formulate hypotheses, for instance on a mode of action for a new drug, followed by a set of validation experiments. The new tool allows them to find the necessary compounds for the experiments, cost out a project and make purchases on the relevant Sigma Aldrich landing pages."
