A new direct sales organization help the scientific community.
November 04, 2010
SCIEX, a global leader in life science analytical technologies, today announced that the company has expanded its commercial operations in Korea. The company created a new direct sales organization under SCIEX Korea to help customers located in Korea advance drug discovery, biomedical science, food and environmental safety testing, forensics and clinical research through the use of mass spectrometry technologies. This expansion was made possible by an agreement with Life Science Korea (LSK) to transfer existing sales, service and marketing personnel to SCIEX, effective immediately.
LSK was formerly the official dealer for SCIEX in Korea, providing scientists in the Korean scientific community with access to acquire best-in-class mass spectrometry technologies from SCIEX. The shift from indirect sales through LSK to direct sales with SCIEX associates within the country is intended to enhance customer support and collaborations by providing one point of contact for instrument pre-sales demonstrations, purchase, installation, application support and service. The new personnel joining SCIEX from LSK will be based at SCIEX Korea's new office in Seoul.
SCIEX has a more than 20-year history of innovation and is a market leader in mass spectrometry with more than 12,000 systems installed in laboratories worldwide, including a strong presence across Asia-Pacific. Mass spectrometry is a workhorse analytical technique for a wide variety of scientific applications, including basic research, pharmaceutical development, food contamination testing and vitamin D analysis, among other emerging applications. SCIEX is focused on providing innovative instrument systems, such as the new SCIEX TripleTOFTM 5600 System and SCIEX QTRAP® 5500 Systems, along with intuitive software and comprehensive workflows that simplify and facilitate the use of these technologies.
Vince Gao, Sr. Director, APAC Sales, Support & Customer Service, SCIEX "SCIEX has a commitment to invest for long-term growth in emerging markets, such as Korea. The expansion of our commercial team elevates our presence in Korea and positions us to better serve our Korean customers who are among the leaders helping to drive science forward in this region. With the integration of the sales, service and support functions into SCIEX Korea, we will be able to make faster decisions and simplify the purchase process, so our customers can focus on achieving their goals."
