Parse Biosciences, a leading provider of scalable single-cell sequencing solutions, today announced a partnership with Molecular Diagnostics Korea (MDxK) that will expand its presence in Asia by providing its entire line of Evercode Whole Transcriptome products as well as Cell and Nuclei Fixation kits in South Korea.
The partnership comes shortly after the announcement of Parse Biosciences’ $41.5M Series B round in February 2022, which is enabling the company to expand commercialization of its single-cell RNA-Seq products in response to growing demand. It further provides distribution support for the expanding product portfolio, which includes applications in immune profiling, chromatin profiling, CRISPR screens, and targeted gene panels. The Parse Biosciences approach to single-cell sequencing is based on the Evercode technology, a patented technique of split-pool combinatorial barcoding that enables researchers to sequence cells at scale without the need for expensive lab equipment.
“We are working hard to bring simpler, more scalable, and affordable solutions to researchers, regardless of location,” said Alex Rosenberg, CEO and Co-founder of Parse Biosciences. “We are thrilled to partner with MDxK to broaden access to our technology and support the growing single-cell sequencing community worldwide.”
“We are very pleased to work with Parse Biosciences and proud of providing such advanced technology to the rapidly growing single-cell research field,” said MDxK CEO SungBo Shim. “We believe these scalable solutions give researchers broader and deeper biological insight with more cost effectiveness.”
Access to the Parse Biosciences technology has grown rapidly since the commercial availability of its products in 2021. Since expanding beyond North America to Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia, Parse is now used in over 300 labs across the globe.
