NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Mass spectrometry technology firm AB Sciex said this week that it has recently expanded its manufacturing and operations in Asia and the Middle East with the opening of new facilities in Singapore and Dubai.

The Singapore facility is an R&D and manufacturing center, and is an extension of the firm's current facilities in the Marsiling district where it produces the AB Sciex 6500 series and TripleTOF series instruments. The company said today that the AB Sciex R&D Centre was created to bring R&D, product development, and manufacturing activities together, and it was expanded to make it possible to manufacture more of its products there.
