Fisher Scientific Receives Sponsor Status from BioCity
Fisher Scientific, part of Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., today announced that it has received sponsorship status from BioCity, Nottingham.
Launched in 2003, BioCity, Nottingham is one of Europe's largest bioscience incubators. The award-winning site currently hosts nearly 24 laboratory based companies within the 129,000 square-foot facility.
BioCity is designed to accommodate a range of developing biotechnology and healthcare companies. The facility is highly flexible with laboratory and office units suitable for up to 50 employees, enabling companies to take on more space as they grow.
The Fisher Scientific specialist has been working hard within BioCity and Laboratory Manager - Suketu Shah, shared his thoughts on why he is happy to work with Fisher Scientific.
Suketu works within the central BioCity facility called Biotel, he advises new companies on where they can source products, and he is also responsible for purchasing along with running the central NMR facility. Suketu is obviously very busy and here lies one of the reasons for Fisher Scientifics' success within BioCity. "I have previously been let down by other suppliers. Fisher Scientific is always reliable and I know I can just call my Fisher [Scientific] specialist, if I need to source a product or need a price". Suketu also recommends Fisher Scientific to all the new Lab Based start-ups. "My Fisher [Scientific] Specialist has worked out different start-Up packages with BioCity and Fisherbrand is a very popular product choice with the help of Fisherbrand vouchers. I have considered putting a Fisher Scientific/BioCity catalogue together which I will give to all new Lab Start-Up companies moving into BioCity" he added.
