Biological Industries (“BI”; www.bioind.com), a leading developer and manufacturer of cell culture media, molecular biology tools, human cytogenetics media, and custom media manufacturing services, announced today that it is expanding its operations into the United States. The company, which prides itself on over 30 years of cell culture media development expertise, state-of-the-art cGMP facilities, and key partnerships with some of the world’s leading scientists, will launch Biological Industries USA, Inc. (“BI-USA”) to market and distribute its products in the United States.

“This expansion is part of Biological Industries’ planned growth strategy and provides geographic support for scientists in the United States region,” says CEO Alon Ariel. “Previously, BI has partnered with strategic distributors within the US in order to market our technology. With BI-USA, not only will our product portfolio be easily and directly available to US researchers, but they will now have direct access to our scientists and internal technical expertise as well.”

BI-USA will focus on high-growth, establishing cell culture training programs, and expanding collaborations within the stem cell and conventional cell culture fields.

Moshe Kapelnikov, newly appointed BI-USA CEO says, “We are excited to bring BI’s strong momentum and expertise in the cell culture field to the US. Our strategic partners have helped market some of our flagship products, including the NutriStem® family of xeno-free, serum-free stem cell culture reagents, optimized karyotyping media, and classical tissue culture media, providing us with a great platform in the US to work with.

The organization is working towards launching the BI-USA brand and developing a new, fully integrated global website, set to launch this fall. Customers can begin ordering products directly through BI-USA beginning November 1, 2015. Please contact Customer Service at 860-316-2702 or email orders-usa@bioind.com.
