Tecan and Attana AB have announced an extended distribution agreement under which Tecan will distribute Attana's label-free biosensor instruments and quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) assay technology in Europe. This collaboration covers the Attana 100, Attana 200 and Cell 200 instruments, as well as biosensors and assay reagents, service and support, extending the existing agreement for North America announced earlier this year. Exceptions to this agreement are Scandinavia and those countries covered by Tecan’s distributor network. This distribution agreement will ensure customers in these new markets can take advantage of QCM technology for analysis of molecular interactions in a wide variety of research applications, supported by Tecan’s sales, service and applications capabilities.
“We are pleased to announce this expansion only six months after our initial agreement with Tecan for North America,” commented Teodor Aastrup, CEO and founder of Attana. “This collaboration will strengthen Attana’s position in Europe through Tecan’s broad sales channels and local presence. Our products complement each other well, and we are able to offer customers a complete solution for biomolecular investigation.”
Andrea Becarri, Global Head of Commercial, at Tecan, added: “Extension of our agreement with Attana will ensure customers receive the highest level of support for their applications, helping them to make the most of this innovative technology with the assistance of Tecan’s knowledgeable sales and service personnel.”
