Gothenburg, Sweden -- Denator AB announced today the signing of agreements with three distributors in the Asian
market. Bio-xplorer International Ltd (China), Bosung Scientific (Korea) and GenDiscovery
Biotechnology (Taiwan) will market, sell and support sell Denator’s range of products that
stabilize tissue samples from the crucial moment of sampling. The company first became active in
the Asian market in 2010, when AMR Inc. became the sole distributor in Japan.
A growing number of peer-reviewed publications, particularly from protein research laboratories, is
demonstrating the increased acceptance of Denator’s proprietary heat-stabilization technique as an
essential step in upstream sample preparation. Scientists use the company’s Stabilizor™ system
to instantly and permanently stop biological changes, thereby preventing the enzymatic
processes that alter protein states and cause protein degradation. Tissue samples can then be
analyzed downstream without risk of sample degradation or changes in protein and peptide profiles.
Olof Sköld, CEO at Denator, stated: “Our mission is to enable researchers around the world to
permanently heat-stabilize biological samples at the very moment of sampling. With that ability, they
can be confident that subsequent analytical results reflect as closely as possible the in vivo situation
that they are studying. The expansion of our distributor network to cover several, rapidly growing
Asian markets is a great step forward for us. As leading, well-respected distributors of life
sciences research products, we believe that our new partners are well positioned to drive the
adoption of the heat-stabilization technique in their regions.”
Denator AB is a privately held biotech company based in Gothenburg, Sweden. Denator develops
and markets products that stabilize biological tissues and fluids from the moment of sampling.
Stabilization and standardization of sampling processes upstream significantly enhances the
quality of data obtained from analytical techniques used downstream. Based upon the company’s
proprietary heat inactivation technology platform, Denator is developing solutions that enable
scientists to stop sample degradation instantly and so maintain the stability of sample
components throughout the analytical workflow.
