Singapore: Marken and BioStorage Technologies entered a new strategic partnership for the Singapore region. While BioStorage is a leader in comprehensive sample management solutions, Marken is the fastest growing global clinical supply chain leader across all continents.
The partnership will utilize Marken's proprietary online tracking system, Maestro, and its state-of-the-art GMP-compliant depot in Singapore; along with BioStorage Technologies' advanced intelligent specimen storage inventory system (ISISS).
Mr Wes Wheeler, CEO, Marken, said that, "The new alliance with BioStorage Technologies creates a unique synergy for our customers. Marken continues to provide creative solutions for our pharma clients and this partnership was a logical next step for our expansion in the Asia Pacific market."
Mr Wheeler also said, "We are very impressed with the BioStorage processes that ensure biological sample assets are maintained with the highest level of integrity and to the same high standards as our own GMP-compliant depot facilities."
CEO of BioStorage Technologies, Mr Gregory Swanberg, commented, "Customers will immediately recognize the value of this partnership and will greatly benefit from the opportunities the two organizations can provide to the region. We are very pleased with Marken's current client solutions and we anticipate that together, we will be able to offer unique advantages in the Asia Pacific market."
