Pressure BioSciences Signs Three Distribution Deals Covering Six Countries

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Pressure BioSciences today announced distribution deals with three companies to market and sell the firm's Pressure Cycling Technology and the Shredder SG3 mechanical homogenization device and associated consumables in six countries.

Pressure Bio reached an agreement with Yinzhou Police Equipment & Technology to market and sell Pressure Bio's products in China. The deal limits Yinzhou to China's forensics marketplace. South Easton, Mass.-based Pressure Bio said it plans to add other distributors in China outside of the forensics area during the second half of the year.

The company also inked a deal with BMN MSI covering Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, as well as a deal with iScience Technology for Australia and New Zealand.

The three deals are exclusive for the PCT product line but are non-exclusive for the Shredder SG3 and associated consumables.

Financial and other terms of the deals were not disclosed.
