Danish diagnostics product distributor Ramcon is to become exclusive distributor of the ID-Tag respiratory viral panel (RVP), developed by Canada's Tm Bioscience, in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway. The ID-Tag RVP detects 20 respiratory viruses and subtypes, including avian flu and SARS, and runs on Luminex analysers, which Birkerod-based Ramcon also distribute across Scandinavia, said Tm Bioscience. The Toronto, Ontario firm has also secured distribution agreements for the test in the Netherlands and Turkey and said it plans to continue increasing its commercial distribution footprint across Europe in anticipation of regulatory approval - including FDA 510(k) clearance, Canadian approval and European CE-marking - of the product.
