San Carlos, California , Jan 31, 2017

NuGEN Technologies, Inc. announced the appointment of new distribution agreements, and Director of Sales - Worldwide Territories.

“With the addition of our new partners, NuGEN has dramatically improved access to its innovative technology” said Nitin Sood. “We are also pleased that these relationships and our customer support will be managed directly by Michael Abdo, Director of Sales who is based in the region”

Michael Abdo, Ph.D. joins NuGEN from PerkinElmer, where he served as Business Development Leader - Asia Pacific for several years, spanning a portfolio of products in automation and NGS sample prep. Prior to his current role, Dr. Abdo was engaged in the clinical genomics setting (PathWest), having undertaken postdoctoral studies at CSIRO and the Department of Agriculture, Western Australia. He holds a Doctorate in Molecular Biology and Master's degree in Biotechnology & Business.

Dr. Abdo commented "NuGEN’s simple, clean and cost-effective workflows are ideally suited to the region, as is the emphasis on improving human health, and food productivity and security. It’s certainly an exciting time to be a part of the NuGEN team and represent the brand outside of its core markets in the United States and Europe."
