Seahorse Bioscience Taps Research Instruments as SE Asia Distributor

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Seahorse Bioscience, a maker of cellular bioenergetic measurement tools, said today that it has named Research Instruments to distribute its products in Southeast Asia.

Singapore-based Research Instruments will distribute Seahorse's XF Extracellular Flux Analyzers, which provide a kinetic method for measuring the mitochondrial and glycolysis energy-producing pathways in a microplate.

The Billerica, Mass-based company's XF Analyzers are used to assess the impact of disease, drugs, genetic manipulations, and environmental effects on cells by monitoring the rate at which they consume oxygen and produce metabolic by-products, which identifies mitochondrial dysfunction and changes in cell metabolism.

Seahorse's VP of Sales and Marketing Steve Chomicz said in a statement that the partnership with Research Instruments will enable the company "to accelerate our sales in Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand, as they have existing relationships with our ideal customer base."
