10X Genomics Inks Japanese Distribution Deal

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – 10X Genomics said today that it signed a deal to distribute its Chromium microfluidics-based molecular barcoding system and related products in Japan through Scrum.

Specific terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"With the addition of our new Japanese partner, 10X has successfully inked distribution arrangements throughout the Asia Pacific region," 10X CEO Serge Saxonov said in a statement.

Earlier this year, 10X announced agreements with four companies to promote and sell its products in the Asia-Pacific region. These include arrangements with MDxK for South Korea, Millennium Science for Australia and New Zealand, Research Instruments for Southeast Asia, and Star Research Technology for China.

The Chromium system runs a number of applications including Chromium Genome and Exome products for phasing, structural variant analysis, de novo genome assembly, and remapping of difficult regions of the genome. 10X also recently introduced the Chromium Single Cell Solution for the analysis of dynamic transcription events from large numbers of individual cells.
