NEW YORK, Dec 11 - Compugen revealed Monday a host of new companies that recently signed on as customers of its products and services.
A Compugen spokeswoman said that “over the past few months” AlphaGene, Avalon Pharmaceuticals, Aventis Pharmaceuticals, Chugai Biopharmaceuticals, Scios, and Serono had all become customers of either its LabOnWeb portal, its full-gene-structure reports, or its custom-tailored analysis services.
In addition, Motorola recently announced that it would use Compugen’s chip design services in the development and manufacture of some of its DNA biochips.
On Monday Compugen, which is based in Jamesburg, NJ, and Tel Aviv, also announced the opening of a business development, sales and marketing office in Sunnyvale, California. GenomeWeb first reported the planned opening of the facility last month.
The new site will be used as a launch pad for sales of Compugen's genomic and proteomic products on the West Coast.
“Being closer to our customers will enhance our ability to provide our solutions to our customers," Eli Mintz, president of Compugen, said in a statement.
