Eiken Chemical Co., Ltd. (TSE:4549), and bioMérieux (Paris:BIM) have today signed an agreement by which some Pre-Poured Media (PPM) provided to bioMérieux customers in Japan will be replaced by those manufactured by Eiken. This agreement should be set in force in August 2007. Mr. Tetsuya Teramoto, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eiken Chemical, said: “Since our foundation, we have been developing and offering reagents for microbiological investigation in order to prevent infectious diseases and food contamination. Today, we also develop and offer a wide range of in vitro diagnostic products, and specifically culture media, which contribute to progress in public health. We have now come to an agreement with bioMérieux, one of the largest global companies in this field, regarding service and distribution. This is a sign of recognition of the quality of our products on the Japanese market and therefore, we will make every effort possible to ensure this collaboration is a success.”
