Harvard Bioscience is one of the leading life science instrument companies in the U.S. established over 100 years ago in Harvard Medical School. The BTX Electroporation products, acquired from Genetronics in 2003, are market leaders in gene delivery. The collaboration of Nanoentek, the developer of a novel gene delivery system, and BTX Harvard Apparatus, the market leader in gene delivery products, goes beyond a co-marketing alliance. The two companies have agreed to explore joint development strategies for a next generation life science instrument encompassing microfluidics and nanotechnology. This joint development project and technical support will take place at the HBIO headquarters located in Holliston, Massachusetts in a specialized lab.
"We are pleased to have forged a strategic alliance with Digital-Bio. This alliance strengthens the distribution for our BTX products in selected Asian markets and provides us access to some exciting new technology gaining us entry into a $20 million market segment," said Chane Graziano, CEO of Harvard Bioscience.
Marcela Vera-Garcia, Director of the BTX Harvard Apparatus business unit, added, "the first Digital Bio product, the Microporator, which we will exclusively distribute in the U.S., uses a novel technique to introduce compounds into cells and takes electroporation to an entirely new level of performance."
Neon C. Jung, Chief Business Officer of Digital Bio, commented, "Partnering with a life science leader such as Harvard Bioscience is an important milestone in Nanoentek's growth. We are very pleased to introduce our novel gene delivery technology in the U.S. market with a leading gene delivery company."
