Berlin | Posted on February 9th, 2011

As JPK continues to expand its markets in Asia, new resources have recently been put in place to provide increased applications and service support to their increasing user base. JPK's Asian office, which is headquartered in Singapore, has appointed Dr. Philip Yj Lui.

Dr. Lui received his PhD from National University of Singapore where his research included protein-induced DNA bending, compaction of DNA in white spot syndrome virus, DNA binding/ ionic switching and many other life science- related applications. During his research, he gained experience using AFM and building a magnetic tweezers system.

Lotis Korea has been appointed as JPK's exclusive representatives in Korea. Lotis Korea is a privately held, well established Korea distributor company with many years experience supplying scientific instrumentation. Their experienced team has established a good reputation in the market, particularly in the fields of electron and optical microscopy. CEO, Mr. H. J. Seo said, "We are continually looking for high quality instrumentation to complement our product line. It is indeed an honor for us to represent JPK in the Korea market. We believe strongly that we will achieve success working together."

In Malaysia, JPK has appointed KL Analytical Sdn Bhd, as their exclusive representatives. KL Analytical is a privately held, well established and successful distributor in Malaysia. The company supplies a range of scientific equipment to both the academic and industrial research community. CEO of KL Analytical, Mr. K. L. Chan says "The Malaysian government is investing to grow the level of research in field of nano and biotechnology. With KL Analytical's large customer base and strong support team working together with JPK's top quality, high-end AFM and optical tweezers systems, we form a good partnership to succeed in this growing market."

Lawrence Tan, JPK's Asia Pacific Sales Manager commented, "Expanding our organization to better support our customers across Asia represents an important milestone in the growth of our company. We have been looking for a good distributor for Korea for a long time. Lotis Korea is vastly experienced in this field and applies a professional approach to business. I have known Mr. Chan and his Malaysian company for many years and have witnessed his achievements leading his capable team with experience and vision."

With a second direct sales and applications center in Tokyo, JPK now supports a network of seven distributor partners across Asia & Australasia.
