Boule Diagnostics expands with additional distributor in Russia

Boule Diagnostics has contracted Diakon ZAO as the distributor of Swelab-systems on the Russian market. Russia is a large and rapidly growing market for complete blood cell count and with Diakon, a supplement to existing distributors, Boule is well positioned to continue to take market share in Russia.

Ernst Westman, President CEO of Boule Diagnostics AB, comments;

“Russia is one of our most important markets where we for a long time have had a very good cooperation with Unimed for the sales of the Medonic-system. We are now adding Diakon for the sale of our Swelab-systems. Diakon has a very broad geographic coverage of the Russian market and a product portfolio that complements Boule’s offer. We expect to see an increase of sold instruments this year on the Russian market, and thereby continued increase in the sales of consumables, which in time will generat higher margins.”

Diakon ZAO is one of Russia’s largest companies within in vitro diagnostics (IVD) with sales in more than 60 major cities all across Russia.
