Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
BEVERLY, Mass., & TORONTO, March 2, 2012 — Hamilton Thorne Ltd., a provider of laser devices and imaging systems for the fertility, stem cell and developmental biology research markets, has expanded its distribution partnership with Leica Microsystems of Wetzlar, Germany, a microscope and scientific instrumentation supplier. The collaboration will give the German company access to Hamilton’s current portfolio of laser products as well as select pipeline products, including the IMSI STRICT software for the fertility market.

The new multiyear agreement provides Leica with nonexclusive rights to market and distribute Hamilton products in Spain, Portugal and Italy, in addition to the North American market. Hamilton and Leica also will continue to collaborate on technical product integration.

“In the US markets especially, Leica Microsystems has provided Hamilton with significant technical advantages, which has enabled our internal sales team to enter new and beneficial developmental biology research markets,” said David Wolf, president and chief executive officer of Hamilton Thorne.

Hamilton launched several “game changing” products in 2011, such as its new Lykos laser system, and will continue to introduce new, innovative products in 2012, Wolf said.

“The renewed partnership with Leica Microsystems will expand the distribution channels for these new products in North America and Europe, and help drive rapid product adoption,” he said.

The expansion of the existing strategic relationship will continue to focus on joint product development, manufacturing of select components for Hamilton products, and distribution arrangements in additional markets.
