Munich, Germany, October 24th, 2011; Today, Nanion announces the opening of yet
another branch. To meet the needs of the rapidly expanding number of customers in
China, the dedicated sales- and support team in Beijing now opens the doors to
Nanion Technologies China.
Nanion successfully entered the Chinese market over five years ago, and the installed base of
Patchliner and Port-a-Patch instruments has grown constantly ever since. To cover the increasing
interest and activities within the fields of ion channel screening, scientific and contract research, the
subsidiary Nanion Technologies China is now officially open.
Andy Di, General Manager, Nanion Technologies China, says:
“Nanion’s customer base in China has grown rapidly over the past couple of years. Nanion’s products
are very appreciated here because of their vast experimental freedom paired with increased
throughput and affordable consumables. Because of their high quality and reliability, products like the
SyncroPatch 96, the Patchliner and the Port-a-Patch are attractive for both industrial screening
purposes and for dedicated academic research.”
Niels Fertig, CEO of Nanion Technologies GmbH, continues:
“Because of the expanding Chinese market and customer base, it was a natural step to expand in
China. With the new subsidiary we are able to cover the ever-increasing demand for product
demonstrations and installations as well as to continue giving our Chinese customers premium support.
We definitely feel that we have the right people in place for this important step in Nanion’s history, and
we look forward to a fruitful collaboration with the Nanion team in China. “
Nanion Technologies China offers live product demonstrations and customer training in Beijing and
Shanghai, or at the customer site.
Nanion Technologies GmbH is a German, privately held, limited company, founded in 2002 as a spin-off
from the Center for Nanoscience (CeNS) of the University of Munich, Germany. Nanion’s team has
developed and globally established three successful automated patch clamp instruments as enabling
tools for sophisticated and high throughput applications for ion channel research and drug discovery.
Nanion's high quality instruments employ planar patch clamp chips which replace the traditional glass
pipette used in the conventional patch clamp technique. In 2009 Nanion was awarded the German
Founders Award (Gründerpreis), and the Innovation Prize Step Award. Next year, Nanion celebrates its
10th anniversary. Nanion has two branches: Nanion Technologies Inc., North Brunswick, NJ, USA, opened
in 2009, and Nanion Technologies China, opened 2011.
