Roche (Basel, Switzerland) and Sysmex Corporation (Kobe, Japan) have expanded their Global Business Partnership Agreement. The renewed agreement reinforces the commitment of both companies to their long-established collaboration. Under the revised terms, Roche, which has been collaborating with Sysmex for 25 years, will continue to offer Sysmex's hematology products, complementing its comprehensive laboratory solutions portfolio. The Global Business Partnership Agreement between Roche and Sysmex promises to assist patients requiring diagnostic solutions and aims to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of lab testing by offering integrated in-vitro diagnostics (IVD) technologies through a single provider.

The commercial and R&D collaboration between Roche and Sysmex was initiated in 1998, and the companies have since consistently strengthened their partnership. In 2020, both companies signed the Global Business Partnership Agreement to broaden their partnership further and enhance the customer experience. As of 2023, with updated terms and an expanded scope, both companies have reaffirmed their long-standing partnership and commitment to fostering a more sustainable future for society. The revised non-exclusive agreement ushers in a new dimension of cooperation, incorporating an additional eco-social agreement to jointly investigate more sustainable diagnostic solutions. By extending their long-standing collaboration beyond the current portfolio, both companies have demonstrated their commitment to seeking more sustainable solutions.

“We are delighted to expand our 25-year partnership with Sysmex in the area of hematology and in exploring more sustainable diagnostics solutions,” said Matt Sause, CEO of Roche Diagnostics. “Roche and Sysmex both have a long-standing history of delivering reliable and innovative solutions for patients and I am very happy to see this collaboration grow.”

“We are pleased to announce the renewal of our partnership with Roche, reaffirming our commitment to long-term collaboration,” added Kaoru Asano, President of Sysmex Corporation. “Developing our partnerships in the field of diagnostics even further and addressing enduring eco-social challenges represents a significant milestone in advancing our alliance to the next level. Together, we firmly believe in making even greater contributions to our customers in laboratories and creating a sustainable society."
