NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Swedish sample prep firm Denator said today it has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with AMR covering the Japanese market.
Under the terms of the deal, AMR will market and service Denator's heat inactivation technology, the Stabilizor T1 system, and all related consumables. AMR has already sold the Stabilizor system to research facilities in Japan, such as the Tohuku University for studies into the clinical application of transplantation of islets of Langerhans.
Further terms of the deal were not announced.
The Stabilizor T1 technology is used to stabilize tissues and fluids from the moment the sample is taken, and to keep enzymes from degrading. In February, Denator inked a similar distribution deal covering Switzerland with Bucher Biotec.
Based in Japan, AMR provides solutions for LC/MS and GC/MS analysis to pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and environmental markets.
