NEW YORK – Mobidiag said on Tuesday that it has signed exclusive distribution agreements for its Amplidiag and Novodiag molecular diagnostic products in Europe and the Middle East.
Specifically, the Espoo, Finland-based firm signed distribution agreements for its products with Alab in Poland and the Ukraine; Biogenetix in Romania; and Theranostica in Israel.
Mobidiag's Amplidiag and Novodiag instruments and assays are designed for syndromic infectious disease testing. Novodiag is an automated, cartridge-based system that uses real-time PCR and microarray technology to detect infectious diseases and antibiotic resistance in approximately one hour. Amplidiag is an automated system that does batch nucleic acid extraction and PCR plate setup from stool samples.
"We are extremely pleased to have further expanded our commercial footprint into additional international territories," Mobidiag CEO Tuomas Tenkanen said in a statement. "Our highly versatile and complementary Amplidiag and Novodiag diagnostic solutions continue to gain traction internationally. We are in ongoing discussions with several distribution partners in a range of international markets as customers look for fast, accurate, and affordable diagnostic solutions to a wide range of infectious diseases."
Earlier this year Mobidiag also signed exclusive European and Middle Eastern distribution agreements with Helix2 in Greece; UAB in Latvia and Lithuania; and Ibn Rushd Medical & Scientific Equipment in Kuwait.
In July, Mobidiag signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Pro Med Diagnostics in several African countries.
