The French blood center organization EFS has in this tender chosen HLA typing
products from Allenex. After a central evaluation, it is clear that the 17
transplant laboratories that are part of EFS during the next four years will use
typing products from Allenex subsidiary Olerup SSP.
This is the first time that SSP typing products are acquired on a national level
purchasing agreement on the to Allenex important French market. This contract
has therefore been followed with interest on the global transplantation market.
Allenex and its French partner BioNoBis ensures major new sales volumes at the
same time that existing business is secured.
"We are pleased that the solution for HLA typing, which we offered EFS has won
us the contract" says Pascal Herve, President of BioNoBis and responsible for
the negotiations. "The products from Allenex/Olerup SSP, along with our
technical expertise and strong local customer support have proven to be a
winning suggestion to EFS” he continues.
The expected value of purchases for Allenex is about 6 MSEK per year for four
years, a total of about 24 MSEK. The net direct sales increase is about 3 MSEK
per year, but a negative outcome of the negotiation would have meant a sales
decrease by a corresponding amount. The transaction is handled locally by
Allenex French partner BioNoBis. They have been the partner of Allenex/Olerup
SSP in France for many years and they have a strong position in the market for
"This positive news from EFS confirms our strong position in the market for
transplantation diagnostics. The choice of our SSP products for HLA typing to
all EFS member transplantation laboratories is also recognition of our French
partner BioNoBis and the result of strong local presence" says Anders Karlsson,
CEO of Allenex.
