Financial details were not disclosed.

"Together with the rest of the international community, we share the sorrow and anguish of the Japanese people after the terrible earthquake and tsunami which have deeply hurt their country. We have gone through business discussions and important meetings in regards to this partnership since last year and feel today satisfied to have reached this agreement. We are indeed very pleased to partner with SYSMEX, with its global leadership position within hematology and its knowledge of its home market, to expand our commercial efforts to Japan and carry on our market penetration" said Vincent Fert, Chief Executive Officer of IPSOGEN.
