DKSH has signed a strategic agreement with Nicoya to promote their surface plasmon resonance (SPR) instruments in key Asian markets. This partnership is in line with the strategic focus of DKSH Business Unit Technology to solidify its position as a leading integrated solutions provider for the scientific Instrumentation market.
DKSH Business Unit Technology has entered into an exclusive partnership with Nicoya, an innovative manufacturer of SPR instruments, headquartered in Kitchener, Canada. DKSH will provide marketing, sales and after-sales services support in selected markets across Asia, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore and Vietnam.
