NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Life Technologies today announced that Rhenium will be its principal distributor in Israel, a move to consolidate its distribution channel in that country.
"We want our customers to be able to access the broad research and development portfolio of Life Technologies' products and services including, amongst others, the Invitrogen and Applied Biosystems brands from one principle distributor, and have decided to consolidate our distribution channels accordingly," Colin McCracken, vice president and head of sales in EMEA at Life Technologies, said in a statement.
The company said that Agentek will continue to distribute Life Tech's products and fulfill customer orders on behalf of the company until Dec. 27. Medogar, which primarily distributes Life Tech's HLA products, will continue in that role.
Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.
