Lifeonics Limited, the developer of smart, in-‐situ analytical devices is pleased to announce the signing of a distribution agreement with Hangene Ltd., an estabished distributor of scientific laboratory equipment in the Taiwan life science and industrial markets.
Hangene will launch, market and support SMOD™, a unique, miniaturized device for non-‐intervention monitoring of cell culture fermentation, ideally suited for laboratories growing cells in flasks. SMOD acquires optical density and temperature measurements within the flask, according to user-‐defined protocols and reports data via wireless communication to a lab-‐based PC. Data is also made available to mobile devices over local networks.
Clive Seymour, CEO of Lifeonics comments, “We are delighted to have signed an agreement with Hangene Technologies to launch our novel SMOD technology in Taiwan. Hangene’s experience in offering products for automation and cell based technologies will ensure that the smart sensing technologies we offer, will be rapidly and succesfully introduced, bringing all the advantages of in-‐situ sampling to Taiwan’s advanced scientific sector”
Mr Steve Yu, President of Hangene comments, “Finding and offering solutions to enhance scientific discovery and productivity for our customers is core to our approach to supporting science and technical development in Taiwan. The unique SMOD technology offers a smart and automated approach to what is currently a time consuming and often inaccurate method for the cell culture monitoring process. We look forward to introducing SMOD in Taiwan”
