Sigma-Aldrich And Paragon Scientific Ltd. Form Strategic Partnership For Marketing Paragon Products

ST. LOUIS, July 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sigma-Aldrich (NASDAQ: SIAL), a leading Life Science and High Technology Company, announced today it has signed an agreement with Paragon Scientific to help develop Paragon's product range and to expand availability of Paragon's calibration standards and certified reference materials through Sigma-Aldrich sales and marketing channels.  A new landing page,, has been established to provide customers with direct access to the full range Paragon products and technical information.

"This agreement strengthens our long standing relationship with Paragon and provides the accredited laboratory community with broader access to essential certified reference materials needed by ISO 17025 accredited laboratories," said Dr. Russel Gant, Sigma-Aldrich Vice President, Analytical.

Sigma- Aldrich's Applied Business Unit will be the primary global distribution channel for Paragon Scientific products with Paragon continuing to manage and support its OEM partners and key accounts.

"This agreement will enable scientists around the globe to more easily access Paragon Products.  Working together with Sigma-Aldrich, we will be able to develop new certified reference materials to meet the needs of our global customer base,"  said Jeff Morris, Paragon CEO.

"Using Paragon certified reference materials eliminates potential analytical variables, which ultimately increases confidence in analytical data and could lead to a reduction in time and expense for analysts," said Dr. Fabian Wahl, Sigma-Aldrich Business Development Director, Analytical. "In addition, Sigma-Aldrich's web-based marketplace offers convenient access to a comprehensive range of products for the entire analytical workflow."

Paragon recently doubled its research and development capabilities with a move into a newly refurbished facility featuring a suite of purpose designed production laboratories.  Production and distribution capacity has also increased three fold.
