NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Zygem has reached several new distribution agreements for its products and others in the Asia Pacific region, the company said today.
Two of the agreements cover distribution of the company's enzyme-based DNA extraction kits in Asia, and three others are co-distribution pacts in New Zealand and Australia.
The company has signed up Shanghai Sangon Biological Engineering and Technology Services to serve as exclusive distributor of the DNA extraction kits in China. It also has enlisted SolGent to distribute the kits in South Korea.
Zygem also said that in New Zealand and in certain parts of Australia it is co-distributing custom oligonucleotides from Integrated NDA Technologies, PCR reagents from Quanta Biosciences, sample storage products from Biomatrica, and lab microplates from Porvair Sciences.
Zygem CEO Paul Kinnon said in a statement that the new partnerships give the company a major presence in key life sciences hubs and emerging markets around the world. "These agreements also give us an ideal channel to promote Zygem's planned new products as they are released over the course of the year," he said.
