NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Genvault has sold one of its room-temperature storage systems to Malaysia’s UKM Medical Molecular Biology Institute for the Malaysian Cohort project, the company said yesterday.
Genvault said the system will be used to help preserve samples in the UMBI Biobank.
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
The Malaysian Cohort is a part of the Asia Cohort Consortium, which is an international collaborative consortium that includes member countries Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, China, India, Singapore, Malaysia, and the US.
The consortium’s goal is to collaborate to “combine resources and expertise to study the interaction of genes, environment and lifestyle in causing diseases,” the company said.
