07 December 2011, Uppsala, Sweden: Gyros AB, a leader in utilization of microfluidic technologies to miniaturize and automate immunoassays, announced today that Binex Co., Ltd., a leading CDMO (Contract Development & Manufacturing Organization) for biotechnology products in the Asian-Pacific region, has purchased a Gyrolab™ workstation.

S.E. Kim, president and CEO at DI Biotech, the sole distributor of Gyros products in South Korea, commented: “We are extremely pleased that Binex has become the first South Korean customer to adopt this exciting new platform. Our goal at DIBiotech is to ensure that our customers have access to the latest ground-breaking technologies.
