ImaginAb, Inc. Announces Formation of Singapore Subsidiary, ImaginAb Molecular Imaging Pte Ltd.


9/6/2011 12:35:51 PM

LOS ANGELES and SINGAPORE, Sept. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ImaginAb, Inc. is pleased to announce the establishment of a wholly owned Singapore-based subsidiary, ImaginAb Molecular Imaging Pte Ltd (IMI). IMI is the first step in the company's international expansion and marks a significant increase in research capability for the organization. IMI will be established to provide GLP pre-clinical molecular imaging services to both the US parent company and select biopharma partnerships, including optical imaging and positron emission tomography (PET) services.

Christian P. Behrenbruch, Ph.D, ImaginAb's CEO, commented, "Singapore has tremendous resources and facilities of interest to ImaginAb. We already have a close dialog with several A*Star Research Institutes (RIs) and a formalized collaboration with Sir David Lane's lab at the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB)." The establishment of IMI will strengthen the possibility of further collaborations with A*Star, university labs and several global pharmaceutical companies who have established translational medicine units in Singapore.

"Establishing a significant research footprint in Singapore has been a straightforward process, greatly facilitated by the ease of working with A*Star, EDB and other government stakeholders who are committed to bringing highly innovative US companies to a growing and dynamic biotech cluster," commented Dr. Behrenbruch. "We are impressed with the quality of industry-accessible core resources and the international talent base in Singapore. We also expect ImaginAb's footprint in Singapore will also enable the company to better service a rapidly growing client base in Korea, Japan and China."
