PLEASANTON, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–10x Genomics, Inc., today announced that it has entered into
distribution agreements with MDxK, Inc., Millennium Science Pty Ltd,
Research Instruments Pte Ltd, and Star Research Technology Ltd., for the
promotion, sales, and support of 10x’s ChromiumTM System and
associated products to address long range and single cell genomic
applications in Asia and Pacific Rim markets (APAC).
The distribution agreements cover South Korea (MDxK), Australia and New
Zealand (Millennium Science), Southeast Asia (Research Instruments), and
China (Star Research Technology).
“The Asia-Pacific region is experiencing significant growth across all
areas of genomics spurring demand for solutions that provide full
sequence information and genomic analysis at single cell resolution,”
said Dr. Serge Saxonov, 10x’s Chief Executive Officer, “we are thrilled
to welcome Millennium Science, MDxK, Research Instruments, and Star
Research Technology, each premier life science instrumentation
distributors in their respective regions, as key partners to 10x. These
partnerships represent an important step in the global commercial
expansion of 10x, and working together, we will be able to better serve
our customers’ needs in the Asia-Pacific region.”
10x’s microfluidics-based molecular barcoding solutions, built on the
proprietary GemCode™ Technology, provide researchers critical long-range
sequence information through existing sequencing workflows. The Chromium
Genome and Exome Solutions together include phasing, structural variant
analysis, de novo genome assembly, and remapping of difficult
regions of the genome. In addition, 10x’s recently introduced Chromium
Single Cell Solution allows for rapid and comprehensive analysis of
dynamic transcription events from large numbers of individual cells.
“We are excited to be working with 10x to bring the Chromium System to
market and introduce important new dimensions to our customers’
research”, said Steven Qiu, Chief Executive Officer of Star Research
Technology. “10x Genomics is recognized for delivering critical enabling
applications, including long-range sequence information and
high-throughput single cell analysis. This partnership will enable our
NGS customers to access 10x’s linked-read sequencing products and
significant new capabilities that will power further advances in single
cell biology and genomic research.”
