Gothenburg, Sweden10 February 2011:

Denator AB announced today that it has signed a distribution agreement with Westburg BV to become sole distributor of the company’s Stabilizor® system and accessories. Implementation of the Stabilizor solution in laboratory workflows is reflected in a growing number of peer-reviewed publications particularly from proteomic laboratories. The system uses a proprietary heat-inactivation technology to stabilize tissue samples at the crucial moment of sampling, enabling scientists to perform further analyses without risk of sample degradation.

Olof Sköld, CEO at Denator, commented on the company’s selection: “Westburg has been a well-appreciated and successful distributor of life science and diagnostics products and services for more than 20 years. Their focus on providing innovative, high quality products supported by knowledgeable staff and excellent service makes them an ideal partner in the Benelux. This region contains many outstanding academic institutions and biopharmaceutical industries that can benefit from our unique heat-stabilization technology.”

Jurjen Balkema, CCO at Westburg, added: “Including the Stabilizor products in our portfolio ensures that we continue to meet the needs of our customers.  With the ability to permanently stabilize their biological samples at the very moment of sampling, they can be confident that subsequent analytical results truly reflect the in vivo situation. We are extremely pleased to collaborate with the Denator team in their efforts to further penetrate the Benelux market.”

Following a successful introduction of the Stabilizor system, Denator continues to expand its distributor network to enhance its coverage in strategically important regions such as UK, Benelux, Switzerland and Japan. The company is headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden and sells directly in USA.
