SAN DIEGO, CA and DURHAM, NC – Cell Microsystems, a developer of advanced research tools for single cell workflows, has partnered with United BioChannels (UBC), a leading brand management consultancy, to enhance Cell Microsystems’ marketing and sales capabilities. The agreement enables Cell Microsystems to leverage UBC’s expertise in strategic marketing to enhance its commercial positioning as well as UBC’s sales channels in the United States to expand its domestic reach and to grow its user base.
Cell Microsystems’ lead products, the CellRaft® AIR™ System and CellRaft™ Arrays, enable complex workflows to be performed on a single consumable, including clonal propagation of single cells for CRISPR gene editing, stem cell, 3D culture, cell-based assays, and genomics research. The System uses real-time on-array image analysis of single cell workflows under standard culture conditions resulting in unperturbed phenotypes, high viability, and efficient yields with a range of sample sizes.
“The partnership with United BioChannels means that we are able to deploy a seasoned team of marketing strategists and sales professionals to quickly grow Cell Microsystems’ commercial presence,” said Gary Pace, Cell Microsystems’ CEO. “We view UBC as a critical component of our growth strategy.”
Under the terms of the agreement, UBC will assume commercial leadership responsibility for Cell Microsystems’ portfolio and work with Company management to integrate its activities with distributors outside the US. UBC will rapidly deploy its US-based sales channels to execute on Cell Microsystems’ robust sales pipeline to meet the company’s revenue forecast for 2021 and beyond.
