HELSINKI, Finland, October 2021. Euformatics, a bioinformatics software company providing world-leading NGS interpretation and quality control tools has entered into a partnership with Scientronics, the Illumina distributor for Cyprus, to introduce the omnomics Suite of NGS software products to the growing number of laboratories using NGS in the country.
The agreement between the Finland-based company and Scientronics is Euformatics’ first partner in the Mediterranean region and an exciting first step in bringing its products to a part of Europe that is leading the way in the transition to precision medicine. As the official Illumina distributor in Cyprus, Scientronics has already established a strong user-base in the country, despite its relatively small size. The agreement places Scientronics as a local agent in Cyprus which will introduce Euformatics to customers based on its strong network of connections. Indeed, the limited number of potential customers in Cyprus is viewed as an advantage by Euformatics as it could help facilitate peer-to-peer sharing and learning of NGS analysis techniques, further improving the way in which NGS is used in clinical diagnostics.
The omnomics Suite of software products from Euformatics complements the current portfolio of offerings from Scientronics and allows clinical NGS laboratories in Cyprus to take advantage of world-leading quality control and variant interpretation software tools.
Managing Director of Scientronics, Angelos Sarpetsas, explained “Making sure that tertiary analysis of NGS data is reliable and easy is of the utmost importance for clinical laboratories. We believe that omnomicsNGS and omnomicsQ from Euformatics, combined with the expertise and knowledge of Euformatics are a winning combination when it comes to NGS software tools. We are excited to start working with them to help the continual improvement of the quality and breadth of NGS testing in Cyprus.”
Euformatics CEO, Tommi Kaasalainen, commented “Our partnership with Scientronics is really exciting because together we can have discussions with the top NGS laboratories in Cyprus to be able to offer a truly comprehensive NGS solution, from wet-lab to clinical report. With over 25 years of business success in Cyprus, we are convinced that Scientronics is the right partner for us in building our customer-base there and helping to advance our drive to ensure a precision medicine for all.”
The agreement is the latest in a long list of distribution and sales channel partner agreements that Euformatics has signed since the beginning of 2021, covering Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. The company has plans for strong international growth over the coming years and intends to start that process through building lasting relationships with global distributor partners.
