SenzaGen has signed agreements with CRO companies GV Research Platform (GVRP) in India and Oroxcell in France for the distribution of the company's non-animal test portfolio, GARD® for chemical risk assessment. These strategic partnerships will enable the broadened distribution of GARD® to key markets driven by regulatory and industrial demand for alternative testing methods.
India is a potentially important and large market where SenzaGen has already noticed increased interest in GARD® and has successfully secured orders from Indian customers. By collaborating with GVRP, a prominent CRO and distribution company in India, SenzaGen now gains access to a robust network and expertise in the country’s thriving Life Science sector.
Similarly, SenzaGen’s partnership with Oroxcell, an well-established CRO in France, strengthens the company’s presence in one of its key geographic markets. France, known for its world-leading companies in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, has long upheld a ban on animal testing for cosmetics as a member of the EU. With Oroxcell’s strong focus on innovative, animal-free methods, SenzaGen will benefit from their broad network of contacts and specialist knowledge.
”Expanding SenzaGen’s distribution channels is a crucial part of our scaling up as a commercial company. With the addition of two new quality distributors in important markets where we see an increasing demand for GARD®, we are taking important steps on our growth journey,” says Peter Nählstedt, President and CEO of SenzaGen.
Both distributors will actively promote GARD® in their test portfolio, with a focus on biotech, pharma, chemical, and cosmetic companies seeking advanced testing solutions. All tests will be conducted at SenzaGen’s GLP certified laboratory in Lund, Sweden.
