Aug 31 2022
Malaysian Genomics Resource Centre Berhad, a leading genomics and biopharmaceutical specialist, have announced that the Group has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to explore opportunities for the distribution of biopharmaceutical and genomics products and services with Ajlan & Bros Medical Company.
As part of the MoU, the parties will explore the feasibility of Ajlan becoming a marketing and distribution representative for Malaysian Genomics for genetic screening tests, mesenchymal stem cell and exosome products. Ajlan will also identify commercial research and development (R&D) opportunities for genome sequencing and analysis in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region for areas such as agriculture, aquaculture, plantations, healthcare and industrial biotechnology.
Malaysian Genomics on its part will analyse samples for genetic screening tests as well as provide Ajlan with genomic and bioinformatics expertise to bid for projects through Ajlan.
Noor Azri Bin Dato' Sri Noor Azerai, Executive Director of Malaysian Genomics, said: "This is a really good opportunity for us to explore the MENA market for our products and services, especially in the area of R&D where we see a lot of growth especially in agriculture and aquaculture due to climate change impact and the health diagnosis for distinct population groups."
H.E. Eng. Ali AlHazmi, Group Chief Executive Officer of Ajlan & Bros Holding Group, said: "We look forward to working with Malaysian Genomics to bring its biopharmaceutical and genetic services and products to Saudi Arabia, which is a good launchpad to the MENA region. This MoU is just the beginning as we explore how we can work closely together in the coming months."
