Norton Scientific Continues Growth; Expands Distribution Network Into Asia

Norton Scientific is proud to announce an extension of its sales distribution network across Asia through Prisma Biotech of Taiwan.

Thorold, Canada, April 17, 2011 --( Norton Scientific is proud to announce the company concluded a deal with Prisma Biotech of Taiwan and has ended its first quarter of the year on a very positive note. Bryan Webb, President of Norton, explains market acceptance of their PAM protein monitoring tool has increased dramatically since its introduction at PITTCON 2011 last month. As a result, the company will accelerate its penetration schedule by now extending its sales distribution network across Asia, as well as Europe and North America.

Prisma Biotech Corp, based in Taipei, with Sales Offices across Taiwan, is a major supplier of specialist instrumentation to the Taiwanese Life Sciences research market. “We are extremely delighted to add Prisma Biotech to the ever expanding Norton sales network,” adds Webb. “We are even more encouraged they have provided us with the first sale in Asia of the new PAM protein monitor. We expect great things from this relationship and continue to build a comprehensive sales presence across Asia using this agreement as the foundation.”

Norton is continuing to assist existing distributors in their marketing efforts, while entering into negotiations with numerous additional strategic distributors spread around identified key markets, and there are several exciting new announcements anticipated shortly, Webb states.

Based in the Niagara Region of Canada, Norton Scientific was established in 2010 to take the knowledge and experience of the founders dating back two decades in the analysis of complex macromolecular and nano-particulate materials and to design innovative measurement tools for use by bench scientists working in modern research facilities.

Initial target markets for Norton are the important biochemical applications of protein aggregate screening and the kinetics of protein-protein interactions. Future developments will broaden this base to include applications in biopharmaceutical research, drug delivery, wound healing, advanced materials, food safety, brewing and viticulture, bio-materials, and in-water pollution monitoring.
