Waters Corporation (Massachusetts, USA) has announced the opening of a Solution Centre based within the Singapore Science Park II (Singapore). The company aims to further strengthen their support of the developing biomedical sector in the region. This announcement follows the establishment of an R&D facility for engineering in Singapore.
“Singapore is a key strategic location for us in Asia and in particular, South East Asia, at two levels – business and talents,” said Mathieu Laouenan, general manager, South East Asia & Pacific Operations, Waters Corporation. “Not only does it bring us closer to our customers in this region, Singapore as a research hub is also where international and local research talents and minds gather.”
According to Mike Harrington, vice president Europe and Asia Pacific division of the Waters Corporation, the challenges faced by scientists in the developing markets of South East Asia, Asia, Singapore and Australia are unique. The centre will provide advanced analytical application development and demonstration capabilities, as well as training facilities to address these challenges.
Mark Ritchie, senior manager of the centre, said, “Through the development of applications to address the challenges faced by scientists in this part of the world, Waters hopes to leverage its momentum in food safety analysis and life sciences innovation and expand its capability in traditional medicine research and the development of new tools for the chemical industry.”
