BioDiscovery Opens Sales and Support Center in the Netherlands

NEW YORK, March 20 (GenomeWeb News) - BioDiscovery has opened a European sales and support center in the Netherlands, the company said today.

BioDiscovery has had a "presence" in Europefor more than eight years. The company, which is based in El Segundo, Calif., said that "as our products have evolved to cover more sophisticated technologies, we realized the need for a direct sales and support organization that had a significant understanding of our technology as well as the European market."


The center will be locally managed by TouchDown Biomarketing, which offers sales and marketing and technical and logistical support to life sciences companies to launch their products or services into the European market.
