LinkMed transplantation company Olerup SSP has signed an exclusive five-year global marketing, sales and distribution agreement with the Australian company Conexio for Conexio’s SBT Resolver™- HLA Sequencing Based Typing product line and sequence analysis software. Olerup SSP will now be able to broaden its product offer towards the HLA community.

Conexio’s SBT Resolver™ products are locus specific PCR based HLA sequencing based typing (SBT) reagents. The agreement includes SBT kits and a version of Assign™ sequence analysis software. The SBT product line will be a strong complement to the HLA typing technology developed by Olerup SSP´┐Ż and sold through its sales channels Olerup Inc., Olerup GmbH and sub-distributors.

Olerup SSP and Conexio have also agreed to co-develop new HLA typing products.
Olerup SSP and Conexio will jointly promote the products at the 25th EFI (European Immunogenetics and Histocompatibility) conference in Prague, Czech Republic, May 4–7, 2011.

“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.

”We looked at several different options for our SBT Resolver™ product line and sequence analysis software and felt that collaboration with Olerup SSP would enable us to best provide high quality solutions to HLA typing laboratories. We are now looking forward to a long and healthy collaboration with Olerup SSP”, says Dr David Sayer, CEO and co-founder of Conexio.
