NEW YORK – Parse Biosciences said on Wednesday that it has partnered with Research Instruments to distribute its single-cell RNA-seq kits in Southeast Asia.
Under the terms of the deal, Research Instruments will distribute Parse's Evercode Whole Transcriptome, Cell Fixation, and Nuclei Fixation kits in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, and Vietnam. Specifically, the firm will provide customer service, technical support, sales and marketing, distribution, and related logistics for Parse’s single-cell genomics product line.
Research Instruments is a Singapore-based distributor for genomic and life science research products with offices throughout Southeast Asia. The company has the infrastructure to offer technical and customer support throughout the region, Parse said.
A University of Washington spinout, Parse introduced its single-cell transcriptome sequencing kits featuring Evercode, a proprietary combinatorial barcoding technique, last year. The company later released Evercode Whole Transcriptome Mega, a kit capable of preparing transcriptomes from up to 1 million cells at once, in October 2021.
Parse also partnered with Decode Science in October 2021, expanding product distribution to Australia and New Zealand.
