Roche Diagnostics is to continue as exclusive distributor of Sysmex's haematology instruments for a further 10 years, extending the existing agreement that was first signed in 1998. The deal covers Latin America, certain countries in Europe, Southern Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The Swiss drug and diagnostics group and its long-term Japanese partner have also inked further 10-year, non-exclusive marketing and sale agreements for Sysmex's urinalysis systems and for customer-specific products in haematology, chemistry and immunology. A spokesperson for Roche told Clinica that the new products will be distributed in some, but not all, of the regions in which the haematology systems are already being sold.
