Euformatics Expands Latin American Presence With A&C Group Distribution Deal

NEW YORK – Euformatics said this week that it has entered into a distribution agreement with A&C Group to offer its Omnomics suite of interpretation and validation software for next-generation sequencing in Bolivia, Peru, and Paraguay.

The deal expands Espoo, Finland-based Euformatics' presence in Latin America, which already includes Brazil by virtue of a March distribution agreement with Síntese Biotecnologia.

"Starting this partnership with Euformatics puts us in a great position to help laboratories improve their operations with NGS," A&C Group President Enrique Aguinaga said in a statement. "The usability and flexibility of OmnomicsNGS means that even laboratories who are new to NGS and starting out small have easy and quick access to the information they need to make key analysis decisions and generate reports. In combination with OmnomicsQ, we can ensure that the quality of NGS data being generated is top-quality from the beginning."

Euformatics has been busy expanding through distribution partnerships. The firm moved into Central Asia, the Middle East, and Africa in late 2019 via an agreement with Dubai-based Alliance Global (AGBL Group).

The company has also expressed a desire to sell its products in Southeast Asia. CEO Tommi Kaasalainen specifically named Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia as near-term targets, but did not rule out other countries.
