TAP Biosystems and its distributors are organising ambr seminars around Asia during August, which will take place in the Beijing region of China, Korea and Singapore.

Phillip Sefton, TAP’s Commercial Director stated: “We are pleased that in just six months we have been able to put in place such an extensive network of partners specialising in bioreactor and cell culture products. We are also looking to add distributors in Malaysia and Thailand, to further increase TAP Biosystems’ footprint in this region.”

Our new distributor network will offer scientists in South East Asia access to applications and technical experts, who will explain how the ambr system for example, could enhance the quality of their research, as well as significantly improve the productivity of their manufacturing processes, thus providing them with a competitive edge for their biologics and vaccines.”
