Eidogen-Sertanty Expands Distribution Deal with CTC Laboratory Systems of Japan

NEW YORK, Aug. 25 (GenomeWeb News) - Eidogen-Sertanty has signed up CTC Laboratory Systems of Japan to distribute all of its drug discovery informatics products in Japan, expanding an earlier agreement, the San Diego-based company said on Tuesday.


Among other products, Eidogen-Sertanty offers its Target Informatics Platform, which allows researchers to use protein structure data for lead discovery, lead optimization, and virtual screening.


Eidogen-Sertanty resulted from the merger of Eidogen and Sertanty this spring. CTC Laboratory Systems is a subsidiary of Itochu Techno-Science, a provider of IT solutions for the pharmaceutical, chemical, and food processing industries as well as life science research institutes.
