Companies to provide superior service and support for life scientists in Canada.

Syngene, a world-leading manufacturer of image analysis solutions is delighted to announce that it is strengthening its Canadian presence with  the appointment of respected distributors, VWR International, allowing life scientists in Canada to easily access Syngene’s unrivalled image analysis  technology.

Syngene has appointed VWR International to market its equipment in Canada  because the firm is an established manufacturer’s representative with specialist  knowledge of image analysis. VWR has a network of 60 scientific sales  professionals and 6 life science specialists who will provide sales and technical  support for Syngene’s high quality gel documentation and image analyzer range,  which includes Syngene’s latest PXi systems for imaging and analyzing DNA and  protein gels.

Michael Ratos, Vice President of Marketing Canada, VWR International  commented: “We always look to offer best in class products for our customers  and the Syngene image analysis systems are exactly that. The image analyzers  offer the best value for money and perfectly complement the other products we  provide for DNA and protein analysis so we’re delighted to add them to our  product portfolio.”

Ratos added: “We are especially impressed with the PXi range of image analyzers  because they are cost-competitive. The GeneSys software which comes with the  PXi is user friendly, which means it is quick and easy to set up and demonstrate to  life scientists. The support we have had from Syngene’s technical team has been  fabulous and their training has helped us really understand the products. We’re  looking forward to a long association with Syngene.”

Laura Sullivan, Syngene’s Divisional Manager concluded: "We have had great success recently in the North American market with our image analyzers and are supporting this growth by adding VWR’s extensive network of technical specialists to our team. VWR is a first-class distributor and we know that through their professional approach, Syngene’s excellent reputation for delivering performance and service will be extended to all our existing and potential Canadian life science clients.”
