Claremont BioSolutions, Funakoshi Reach Distribution Deal for Japan

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Claremont BioSolutions today said Funakoshi will distribute its sample preparation, DNA isolation, and protein purification products in Japan.

Funakoshi will offer Claremont's products to various customers in the academic and bioscience community, Claremont said, adding the agreement is part of its strategy to expand its footprint in Asia and Europe.
