Exiqon Opens Sales and Support Facility in US

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Exiqon expanded its US presence by opening a sales, distribution and technical support facility in Boston, the Copenhagen, Denmark-based company said today.
 
The facility expands Exiqon's presence and brings support and sales staff closer to the customers, said Michael Kallelis, who is managing the new facility. Exiqon will also offer a microRNA profiling service for researchers that do not want to do the procedure themselves.
 
The existing Danish facility will focus on sales opportunities in Europe and Asia, where the company is establishing a distributor network.
