Revodix to Distribute LABSMITH Products in South Korea
News Aug 28, 2014
LabSmith,Inc has formalized an agreement with Revodix, Inc. to distribute LabSmith’s products within South Korea. This partnership gives South Korean scientists in engineering, chemistry, and life sciences access to an expansive range of tools for lab-on-chip experiments. Revodix, headquartered in Gyeonggi-do, is a distributor providing end-to-end solutions with tools to support customer’s flow chemistry and biology applications. LabSmith Inc., based in Livermore, California, expands the Revodix product range, adding a wide range of tools for innovative laboratory electronic, visualization and microfluidic solutions.
REVODIX CEO, Mr. Shin, describes the South Korean market in microfluidics for life sciences as growing rapidly. “The government of South Korea and local industry are investing heavily in R&D. Many working in the life sciences see an opportunity to develop new technology for biomedical research and diagnostics by leveraging the microfluidics platform. LabSmith products simplify these experiments and are sophisticated enough to enable researchers to perform and automate cutting edge research. Some LabSmith components are suitable for OEM applications in medical devices. We are excited to add LabSmith’s products to the products we offer our customers.”
LabSmith president and CEO, Kirsten Pace agrees, stating “The South Korean investment in R&D at the universities, government labs, and industry, creates an opportunity for the adoption and improvement of micro- and nano-technologies, particularly as applied to life sciences. As scientists move to platforms that leverage the advantages of small dimensional and volume scales, LabSmith tools can remove obstacles to their success.”
By partnering, REVODIX and LabSmith can provide South Korean scientists with something more valuable than merely products – local service and support. “REVODIX has both a local presence and a commitment to customer service including product demonstrations, installation and support. I am impressed with both the product knowledge and the application support that REVODIX can offer our customers in South Korea, “states Yolanda Fintschenko, Ph.D., Director of Sales, Marketing and New Technologies at LabSmith.
Bubble formation is typically a much more random process than liquid droplet formation, yet the generation of uniform drops and bubbles is very desirable in microfluidics. Researchers have now shown that under certain conditions, bubbles can also be coaxed to form spheres as perfectly matched as droplets.READ MORE
