2012-11-14,AbSorber announces that Abteilung Transplantationsimmunologie at Institut für Immunologie, Universität Heidelberg, Germany now operates as a reference laboratory for XM-ONE® testing in Germany and other European countries.
From May 1, 2011, Olerup has the distribution and marketing rights for the CONEXIO SBT product line. Thereby Olerup will be able to further increase focus and service towards the HLA community. In addition Olerup also distributes Olerup SSP® HLA typing products within this segment.
"This is a big step for us and we expect the collaboration with Conexio to broaden and strengthen our position on the global HLA typing market with a very competitive SBT solution that complements our current product portfolio. It is also a proof that we, in a very short period of time, have been able to build a global organization that can handle distribution and sales for new innovative products towards the transplantation market. The potential for SBT is at least as big as our SSP business", says Dr. Olle Olerup, CEO Olerup SSP.
Olerup SSP is the world leader in the development of kits for genomic HLA typing, which is used prior to transplantations to match donors with recipients. Better matching reduces the risk of complications following transplantation. HLA typing is a standard procedure in bone marrow transplantation (hematopoietic stem cell transplantation) but is also used in organ transplantations (kidney, lung, heart, and others).
Olerup is global distributor of innovative products and services for transplantation: HLA typing (Olerup SSP®) and antibody detection (XM-ONE®). Olerup has through Olerup GmbH and Olerup Inc. the distribution rights for the Olerup SSP® product line, XM-ONE® and Arrow®. For further questions go to "Contact".
