CHINA REPORT: Delegation arrives, holds first event

EDITOR’S NOTE: Rick Rippin, Sales Director for Knoxville-based ABT Molecular Imaging, is one of the members of the Tennessee delegation visiting China and Korea this week. He has agreed to provide us with updates on the trip. Here is the first one that he filed on Sunday.

We arrived yesterday in Beijing.  Very clean, metropolitan city, with many international visitors.  Americans are welcomed here!

We met today with a government company that controls 85 percent of the Radiopharmaceutical Industry in China.  They are interested in utilizing the product in the 200 2nd tier cities in China with population of 500,000 to 1.0 million people, to assist in the implementation of Positron Emission Tomography (PET)   This represents a significant opportunity for our company.

Tomorrow we meet with three additional companies interested in distributing the Biomarker Generator in China.
