Sequenom Sells MassArrays to South Korean Cancer Center, Two Other Customers

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Sequenom sold three of its MassArray analyzers in South Korea in the fourth quarter of 2006, the company said today.
The sales were made through Bioneer, a Daejeon-based genomics research products and services company that signed an exclusive deal with Sequenom in September 2006 to market and distribute the MassArray in South Korea.  
Sequenom said Bioneer sold one of its analysis systems to National Cancer Center of the Republic of Korea, but did not disclose the two other customers.
Bioneer president and CEO Han-Oh Park said the fourth-quarter sales “represent increased demand we are seeing in South Korea for fine mapping genetic analysis solutions, and for life sciences research tools in general.”
