BioInformatics LLC Release: Announcing The 2004 Life Science Industry Award Finalists


10/19/2005 5:12:13 PM

ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The votes of more than 3,000 scientists from around the world are in and the finalists of the 2004 Life Science Industry Awards have been determined.

Sponsored by The Scientist (http://www.the-scientist.com/) and supported by The Science Advisory Board (http://www.scienceboard.net/) and leading market research firm BioInformatics, LLC (http://www.gene2drug.com/), these prestigious awards recognize those life science suppliers with the best solution in 12 separate product categories as well as suppliers that are "best-in-class" in six customer communications and support categories.

"Most scientists are dependent upon instrumentation and specialized software in the lab, but rarely is there acknowledgment of excellence for laboratory equipment and services. Thus, we've designed these awards as an opportunity for researchers to cast their votes for the companies that have made the greatest contributions to life science technology in the past year," said Alexander Grimwade, Publisher of The Scientist magazine.

To ensure complete accuracy and fairness in selecting the winners, The Scientist asked BioInformatics to develop and field the survey of more than 3,000 scientists. Based on the survey results, the top three finalists in each of the following categories-a total of 18 different companies-have been announced:

   * Cell biology kits and reagents -- BD Biosciences (BDX), Invitrogen
     (IVGN), Qiagen (QGENF)
   * Cell biology instrumentation -- BD Biosciences, Bio-Rad (BIO), Carl
     Zeiss (CZMWF)
   * Cell culture media, equipment & reagents -- BD Biosciences,
     Invitrogen, Sigma-Aldrich (SIAL)

Hotel, which will coincide with the American Society of Cell Biology Meeting. The Master of Ceremonies for the event will be noted science communicator, Ira Flatow, host and Executive Producer of National Public Radio's Science Friday, and author of "They All Laughed ... From Light Bulbs to Lasers: The Fascinating Stories Behind the Great Inventions That Have Changed Our Lives."
