The latest collaboration extends the existing North America and South East Asia agreements, granting Pall exclusive marketing and distribution rights to the Optim 1000, to include India.

Alastair Smith, Chief Executive of Avacta Group, commented: “Pall has proved an excellent partner for Avacta, and the success of our existing collaborations in North America and South East Asia was a major factor in the decision to appoint the Company as the sole distributor for the Optim 1000 in India. The Indian biopharma industry is growing rapidly, offering exciting new opportunities, and we look forward to working with Pall in this new territory.”
