GWC Technolgies Appoints Biotron Healthcare as Exclusive Distributor For India

MADISON, Wis.—May 6, 2008—GWC Technologies Inc. of Madison today announced an agreement with Biotron Healthcare (India) P. Ltd. under which Biotron Healthcare will serve as exclusive distributor for GWC’s label-free array systems in India.  Previously niche products, “label-free” systems are now taking center stage in proteomics analysis, drug discovery research and diagnostics development, where they deliver special benefits over traditional detection systems.  A key distinction of label-free systems is that they avoid the use of fluorescent labels that can cause experimental artefacts.  Label-free analysis also allows more information to be collected about target molecules than do conventional scientific instruments.  A key distinction of GWC’s label-free systems is their flexible array format, which delivers superior throughput and greater experimental rigor than do alternative formats.  Biotron Healthcare will now be able to offer GWC’s versatile label-free detection systems to researchers throughout India, delivering powerful and affordable solutions for the most rapidly growing areas of life science research.


According to Tim Burland, GWC’s President & CEO, “Biotron Healthcare has a broad reach across the Indian subcontinent with eight sales offices in addition to their headquarters in Mumbai.  The company is experienced in marketing, sales and support of scientific instruments, research reagents and research supplies, including several product lines complementary to GWC’s products.”  “Equally important,” added Burland, “Biotron staff have both the scientific background and the technical capabilities needed to provide the standard of service and support that GWC demands of its partners.  We are delighted to welcome Biotron Healthcare to GWC’s worldwide team.”
