Maynard, MA --- CHI Scientific, Inc., a fast growing biotech company announced today that VWR International, a leading global distributor of scientific equipment, supplies, and chemicals, has entered into a definitive, non-exclusive, distribution agreement with the company. Effective September 15, 2015, customers will be able to access CHI Scientific’s primary cell culture products through VWR.

This new supplier relationship with VWR International strengthens VWR’s position in the Life Science industry. "This agreement significantly enhances access to CHI Scientific’s industry-leading life science research products, especially in the field of primary cell culture and primary cells for our customers," said Alfred L Chi, PhD, President and CEO of CHI Scientific Inc.
