Cytocell customers in Poland, Czechia, and Slovakia began benefiting from Sysmex’s established sales and support infrastructure on 1st May,with customers in France, Belgium, Switzerland, and Luxembourg joining them on 1st July, 2018.

Cytocell is well known for its comprehensive range, exceptional customer support, service, and expertise. Since the acquisition of OGT by Sysmex last year, the companies have been working hard to develop both commercial and product synergies across their portfolios with a strong focus on growth in molecular diagnostics. OGT is also collaborating with Sysmex to develop an automated FISH testing system, combining OGT’s FISH reagent expertise with Sysmex’s instrumentation technology.
