Namocell Inks Distribution Deals With MDxK, Bioké for Single-Cell Dispenser Tool

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Namocell recently announced that it has signed two separate distribution deals for its Namo Single Cell Dispenser tool with MDxK in South Korea and with Bioké in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg.

The firm's microfluidic-based cell platform dispenses single cells into a 96-well plate in less than a minute.

"The market has been waiting for a high-performance single cell dispensing and sorting instrument that is user-friendly and cost-effective," MDxK CEO SungBo Shim said in a statement. "We believe the Namo Single Cell Dispenser is the perfect fit for the rapidly growing applications such as cell line development and single-cell genomics in Korea."

Koos Kranenborg,Bioké's director of marketing and sales, also noted that Namocell's instrument is "extremely user-friendly, gentle to the cells, and can handle very low sample volume that traditional cells cannot handle."

NamoCell previously signed a distribution deal with Tomy Digital Biology in June to distribute its dispenser technology in Japan.
