Advion Inks Russia Distribution Deal

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Advion today said that it has signed an agreement with Valtex International for distribution of the firm's expression compact mass spectrometer in Russia.

Redwood City, Calif.-based Valtex will be responsible for marketing, sales, service, and support of the expression CMS system in Russia. The firm also has offices in Moscow and St. Petersburg, Russia, and employs more than 15 people in that country. It also markets products throughout the former Soviet republics.

The expression CMS is designed for discovery research and the process development synthetic organic chemistry market and is about half the size and half the price of other single quadrupole mass spectrometers on the market.

"Since its release earlier this year, the expression CMS has gained great global order momentum, and partnering with independent distributors in key geographic markets is important for us to meet market demands," Advion President and CEO David Patteson said in a statement.

Earlier this year Advion inked distribution deals for the system in Australia, Israel, India, and China.
