Thermo Fisher Scientific Extends Latin America Network with new Chilean Partner for Informatics
News Apr 30, 2008
The new distribution agreement allows Alta Tecnología to support sales activities in Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay and Bolivia for the Thermo Scientific portfolio of informatics products which are focused on the process industries and analytical laboratories, including Nautilus LIMS™, Sample Manager LIMS™ and Atlas CDS™.
Dedicated sales experts will target those industries which are strong in the region, and which Thermo Fisher Scientific has long served, including the mining, pharmaceutical, petrochemical and chemical markets.
Oliver Faidi Cortes, director of sales in Latin America & Caribbean Thermo Fisher Scientific, comments, “With distributors already located strategically across Latin America, this new partnership demonstrates our commitment to further expanding and improving our services in this geography. Headquartered in Santiago de Chile, Alta Tecnología has developed a deep knowledge of local businesses across Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay, and the Thermo Scientific Informatics products through training. This perfectly positions Alta Tecnología to further promote and support our informatics portfolio for both new and existing customers.”
Gonzalo Gonzalez, of Alta Tecnología, confirms, “Alta Tecnología focuses on the Latin American market, currently specializing in mass spectroscopy, spectroscopy and elemental analysis. We already represent Thermo Fisher Scientific in Uruguay, Paraguay and Bolivia for mass spectrometry; chromatography; spectroscopy and elemental analysis products; and are responsible for the spectroscopy products (UV-VIS and IR) in Chile. Alta Tecnología will offer sales and technical support for the informatics portfolio, bringing a dedicated local approach to the Thermo Fisher activity in the region.”
In of organic chemistry, reactions are notoriously difficult to analyze. As a result, reaction data in chemoinformatics has been much less developed than information about single molecules. In a new project, titled CGRtools, researchers solved a number of problems to better handle reaction information. The software library is significantly richer in functionality than all the existing tools.READ MORE
Researchers at the Crick and Imperial College London have generated malaria parasites resistant to a promising new class of candidate antimalarial drugs. By analyzing the structural changes behind the resistance, they identified novel compounds that were immune to this mechanism of resistance.READ MORE
