PathSensors and Ensensor Japan have entered into a partnership to bring novel pathogen detection devices to markets in Japan. Ensensor is a bio-detection company created in a joint venture with S.T. Japan, a well-known organization that specializes in selling products such as spectra databases, microscopy accessories, and analytical instruments. The company has become a distributor of PathSensors technology and will give customers in Japan access to pathogen detection systems in applications including biodefense, food safety, and agriculture.
“We were pleased with our showing of PathSensors’ equipment at the JASIS exhibition and are excited to see all that we can do with this unique pathogenic detection device” commented Ensensor President, Dr. Etsuo Nishio. Dr. Nishio has a long history of leading global life science companies. With the aid of PathSensors Sales and Marketing Manager Jack Fritzinger, Ensensor and S.T. Japan demonstrated PathSensors’ CANARY pathogen detection technology on a BioFlash instrument at the JASIS tradeshow. JASIS is one of the largest Asian exhibitions for analytical and scientific instrument showings and brings over 25,000 domestic and overseas leading manufacturers and buyers together in Japan for a three-day event. It took place between September 5th and 7th, 2018.
“Our collaboration with Ensensor and S.T. Japan at JASIS was successful and we look forward to equipping Japanese customers with the same high-speed, high-sensitivity CANARY technology that our American customers have access to domestically,” commented PathSensors President Ted Olsen. “After tapping into China and now Japan, I’m hopeful that we can further develop relationships with partners in Asia and other global markets so that everyone can benefit from the security CANARY detection technology offers.”
PathSensors is a leading Baltimore-based biotechnology company providing rapid, high-sensitivity pathogen detection solutions. The company’s CANARY technology can detect a wide range of threats, including anthrax, ricin, salmonella, and listeria. PathSensors’ technology supports a growing library of threat detection capabilities and can be expanded to meet emerging requirements. The organization’s team of scientists works with top academic institutions and government research organizations on some of the most important challenges in biosecurity.
