Advion Signs on Yair to Distribute Compact Mass Spec in Israel

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Life sciences and consumables firm Advion continued on its expansion into the international markets today announcing a deal with Yair Technologies for the distribution of Advion's expression compact mass spectrometer in Israel.

The deal, the terms of which were not disclosed, follows similar distribution deals this year covering India and China.

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

In the fall, the Ithaca, NY-based company sold its BioServices business, which offered pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamics testing and other services, in order to focus on its core systems and consumables business. 

Yair is based in Israel and supplies instruments and consumables to a range of industries including life science, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical companies.
