Spartan Bioscience

The new distribution partnership is for the US acute care market where, until now, Spartan was selling directly.

The Ottawa-based molecular diagnostics maker also plans to enter applied markets in the near term, and ultimately point-of-care infectious disease testing.

The investment will fund the research and development of new diagnostic testing products, including rapid genetic testing.
