Parse Biosciences Announces Partnership With Research Instruments Group to Offer scRNA-Seq Kits in Singapore and Southeast Asia Region
Previously available in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, partnership to further accelerate single cell genomics research in the APAC region
Seattle, WA, January 18, 2022
Parse Biosciences, a company providing researchers with single-cell sequencing solutions, today announced a partnership with Research Instruments Pte Ltd to provide Parse’s Evercode Whole Transcriptome Kits (WTKs), Cell Fixation Kits and Nuclei Fixation Kits to markets in Singapore and Southeast Asia.
Under an agreement between the two parties, Research Instruments has been appointed a distributor of the Parse product portfolio for Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam.
Research Instruments will provide customer service, technical support, sales and marketing, distribution, and related logistical efforts for the Parse Bioscience portfolio of single-cell genomics research.
Research Instruments is the premier distributor for genomic and life science research products in Southeast Asia, with multiple technical teams and established customer support relationships throughout the region. Their core mission is to introduce and accelerate the adoption of groundbreaking life science research tools to their markets.
In early 2021, Parse Biosciences introduced their Whole Transcriptome Kits to the market which features Evercode: their patented technique of combinatorial barcoding. In October 2021, they expanded that offering to include the Evercode Whole Transcriptome Mega, which allows researchers to profile up to 1,000,000 cells in parallel, and the Evercode Whole Transcriptome Mini, a kit used to profile up to 10,000 cells in parallel for smaller-scale studies at an entry-level price point.
“A significant priority for the Parse team is accessibility–not only in how readily customers can start using the technology, but also with a fully supportive team backing their efforts,” said Alex Rosenberg, CEO and Co-founder of Parse Biosciences. “We’re thrilled that Research Instruments shares our vision of offering scalable and easily adaptable single-cell RNA-seq technology to a wide market.”
“At RI, we’re committed to providing access to innovative technologies,” said Greg Kent, CEO of Research Instruments. “The sequencing solutions of Parse Biosciences simplify workflows without sacrificing resolution, and with our technical sales and applications support teams who are trained and experienced in single cell genomics applications, the Parse Bioscience platform now becomes readily accessible to any scientist in the region.”
Parse Biosciences and Research Instruments will be hosting a technical introductory webinar for Southeast Asia on January 20, 2022 at 10:00 AM SGT.
