Bangkok, Thailand, May 16, 2018 – DKSH Business Unit Technology and ColdBlock Technologies Inc., a manufacturer of innovative sample digestion systems have signed an exclusive agreement. DKSH Business Unit Technology will provide sales, marketing and after-sales services for ColdBlock’s full range of products in Asia Pacific.
ColdBlock offers an innovative sample digestion technology: ColdBlock Digestion. This versatile, patented technology shortens the sample digestion process to just minutes with reliable and precise results consistently demonstrated across multiple industries and a variety of sample types. Using focused short-wave infrared radiation, within ten minutes and without any perchloric and hydrofluoric acids in the digestion process, it dissolves solid matter into solution for multielement analysis, hence has a broad applicability spectrum across industries.
“Our product is the next generation of sample preparation. With local expertise and market knowledge, DKSH is a strong partner to support our efforts to broaden our market share globally”, said Nick Kuryluk, CEO of ColdBlock Technologies.
“With our unparalleled regional coverage, sales and service professionalism and industry knowledge, we are confident that we will duplicate our success and grow the market for Coldblock,” said Hanno Elbraechter, Head Business Unit Technology, DKSH.
ColdBlock Technologies was incorporated in 2014 after several years of research and development to test, and bring to market their innovative sample digestion technology, ColdBlockTM Digestion. Since that time, the company has collaborated with government, academia and industry to demonstrate their innovative solution while elevating the efficiency, productivity and safety of sample digestion.
