Waters Inks Chromatography Products Supply Pact with Daiso

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Waters said today that it has agreed with Japanese firm Daiso to market and supply the Daisogel bulk packing materials and media for process chromatography and HPLC columns under a global agreement.

Waters said that the Daisogel columns are packed using its Optimum Bed Density technology, which the firm said will save customers the need for method redevelopment as they increase their scale.

The agreement will enable the firm's customers, including contract manufacturing organizations, pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical laboratories, to find the media they require in bulk or in smaller amounts.

Waters said that it began offering the Daiso materials on February 15.
