Isogenica Limited Expands Business Development and Customer Support Operations into North America


3/30/2011 7:06:50 AM

CAMBRIDGE, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Isogenica today announced that it has established a dedicated business development and customer support team based in Alameda, California. The new team will provide direct support to Isogenica’s existing and prospective customers in the United States and Canada. This latest development ensures Isogenica is now well positioned to address the antibody, protein and peptide engineering needs of its rapidly growing user base across North America.

The company also announced the appointment of Garry Merry as Business Development Consultant for North America. Before joining Isogenica, Mr Merry was with Sloning Biotechnologies, where he was instrumental in establishing their gene library technology as the gold standard in antibody development and protein engineering. Sloning Biotechnologies was acquired by Morphosys for €19M in October, 2010. Garry has also held senior executive positions with other successful life science companies, such as Applied Biosystems, Millipore and Qiagen.

Dr Kevin Matthews, CEO, Isogenica commented: “The creation of our new North American office is a critical milestone in the maturation of the company. Isogenica has already experienced significant success in 2011, with Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceutical Research Division. For established as well as prospective clients we understand that direct personal contact is fundamental to the proposition as well as essential for us to achieve our overall growth potential as a company. I am delighted that Garry will be underpinning our efforts in North America. He has an excellent knowledge of the market, and has established relationships with most of the key players in the field of antibody engineering, I look forward to his contribution”.
