CombiMatrix Shares Slide 5.3 Percent Despite Asian Distribution Deal

NEW YORK, Dec. 2 (GenomeWeb News) - Shares in CombiMatrix were down 5.26 percent, or $.10, at $1.80 in mid-afternoon trading today despite word that the company has hired a distributor to market its products in Asia.


As GenomeWeb News reported today, Cell Sciences will distribute CombiMatrix's products and services in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Hong Kong, and Indonesia.


Under terms of the non-exclusive agreement, Cell Sciences, a subsidiary of the CyGenics Group, will market and sell CombiMatrix's CustomArrays and CatalogArrays, including its recently introduced Influenza Research Microarray in those markets.


Earlier this week, CombiMatrix said Cell Sciences would distribute its products and services only in Singapore.
