Saladax Biomedical, Inc.

Saladax Biomedical, Inc., located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, in Northampton County is a privately held company that develops and commercializes novel diagnostic blood tests for the practical delivery of personalized medicine.

During the 2014 “Bringing the World to You” conference, sponsored by the Lehigh University Small Business Development Center (SBDC) International Trade Program, Saladax’s sales representative was able to meet with the Pennsylvania Taiwan Authorized Trade Representative, and she learned that Saladax was communicating with a Taiwan based pharmaceutical company to discuss the possibility of distributing their products in Taiwan.

The SBDC ensured that the Taiwan trade representative followed up with Saladax and requested that she help provide Saladax with a company background check. Following the positive results of the background check, the trade representative also personally visited the Taiwan company to see and further understand their company’s operations. The outcome was enhanced by mutual understanding and trust between both parties and a finalized official distributor agreement between Saladax Biomedical and the Taiwan pharmaceutical company.
