Malvern Instruments secures exclusive distribution rights in the United States, South and Central America for Farfield Scientific analytical instrumen

Malvern, UK | Posted on March 1st, 2007

Malvern Instruments Limited (Malvern, UK) and Farfield Scientific Limited (Crewe, UK) have concluded an agreement that gives Malvern Instruments exclusive distribution rights in the United States, South and Central America for Farfield's unique range of analytical instruments. These systems provide insight into the structure and functional behaviour of biomolecules and nano-scale materials. The agreement is effective from 1 March 2007. Farfield Scientific will continue with its existing sales and distribution arrangements in other territories.

Malvern's Business Development Director, Duncan Roberts, said: "Sales of our established Zetasizer Nano range of particle and molecular characterization systems continue to grow. The combination of dynamic and static light scattering provides sensitivity to small changes in particle size and molecular weight and we are seeing their increasing application for the characterization of proteins, biological and other nano-scale materials. The distribution agreement for the United States, South and Central America with Farfield Scientific will enable Malvern Instruments Inc. to offer its customers an additional capability, allowing them to characterize the relationship between the structure and function of biomolecules, and providing new insights into a range of surface science applications."

Gerry Ronan, Chief Executive Officer of Farfield Scientific commented: "Farfield's proprietary Dual Polarization Interferometry (DPI) technology is the first that is capable of revealing the intimate relationship between structural change and function in biological molecules in real time, at market-leading levels of sensitivity and resolution. The synergy with Malvern's materials characterization systems offers exciting new possibilities to researchers in many areas of nano-materials and biophysical characterization. We look forward to working with Malvern and to supporting their activities through our US office in Pittsburgh."
