Agreement reached on key commercial principles for co-promotion, including plan to integrate DSI’s PhysioTel telemetry platform with ADI’s LabChart software.

St. Paul, MN, US and Dunedin, NZ, April 4, 2016 - Data Sciences International (DSI) and ADInstruments (ADI) are pleased to announce that they have agreed on key commercial principles for a co-promotion arrangement to sell their industry-leading solutions internationally.

The arrangement includes a plan to integrate DSI’s PhysioTelTM implantable telemetry platform with ADI’s acquisition and analysis software - LabChart.  This integrated system will offer scientists studying physiology a turn-key and user friendly tool to address their important research questions. 

In addition, in July 2016, ADI is scheduled to sell DSI’s small animal telemetry solutions internationally.  The intent is that ADI will serve as an exclusive distributor of DSI products in several countries and will compliment DSI’s sales channel in countries where DSI currently sells direct or has established distribution partners.

“Over the last 30 years, DSI and ADInstruments have each built reputations as trusted partners among scientists studying physiology.  Our two companies have similar purpose and values about how we serve our customers”, says Kristen Knox, Chief Operating Officer, DSI. “This proposed arrangement will help us deliver high quality solutions for the critical work of scientists studying today’s most pressing health concerns for humans and animals.”

“ADInstruments strives to constantly improve our offering to make sure that we are meeting the needs of our customers.  We believe that by adding the DSI products to our portfolio and integrating them with LabChart, we extend the value of our solutions and give customers the best ways to acquire high quality data.  We know that DSI feels the same way and this proposed arrangement will result in a solution that exceeds expectations”, said Michael Macknight, Chief Executive Officer, ADInstruments.
