Allenex application to sell AbSorbers product for antibody detection, XM-ONE®,
in Mexico has been approved by local regulatory authorities. XM-ONE® is a cross
match test developed and manufactured by AbSorber, for detection of HLA- and non
-HLA antibodies between the donor and the recipient in organ transplantation.
The application has been handled by Allenex local representative Biodist S.A. de
C.V., a leading company in the Mexican diagnostic market.
"Mexico is an important country for our geographical expansion and a priority in
our growth strategy. We are especially satisfied with the performance of
Biodist, having two of our product lines registered in a short time. We see a
high probability being able to sell both Olerup SSP® products as well as XM-ONE®
in Mexico in the near future", Allenex CEO Anders Karlsson comments.
In Mexico a large proportion of sales occur through contracts within various
health insurance schemes, and the right sales channels are therefore important
in a product launch. The launch of XM-ONE® will start immediately and the focus
in the near term will be to have the product brought onto the list of specialty
tests available for HLA laboratories within the country.
"We are very pleased with the approval of XM-ONE®. We expect to launch the test
as a specialty test for selected clients within our transplantation network.
Already today customers have shown interest to evaluate the test and several of
them have already tested it in their own laboratories. In the short period that
Biodist has been partners with Allenex we have already registered two product
lines in Mexico and we also want to include other Allenex products in the
collaboration," says Rebeca Miramontes Vidal, CEO at Biodist.
