TAP Biosystems Announces Automated Cell Processing Systems Available on GSA Contract - Allowing U.S. Scientists a Simple Route for Purchasing With Federal Government Funding


10/2/2012 8:55:08 AM

02 October 2012 -- TAP Biosystems (Cambridge, UK), a leading supplier of innovative cell culture systems and consumables for life science applications, today announced it has appointed Government Scientific Source (GSS), the veteran owned, premier US supplier of equipment and consumables to US government laboratories, to assist scientists purchasing TAP products on a US Government Spending Account (GSA).

Three of TAP’s market-leading products will be available on GSA contract via GSS, helping US federal government scientists improve their productivity across life science research, development and production: ambr™ (automated micro scale bioreactor) mimics the characteristics of classical bioreactors at micro scale (10-15ml) and accelerates R&D in bioprocessing; RAFT™ (3D cell culture system) generates consistent, reproducible collagen-based 3D cell cultures for assay development and secondary screening, and Fill-It™ (automated dispensing into screw-cap cryovials) maintains optimum cell quality when processing large batches of cryovials.

TAP’s products are supported by a dedicated team of technical sales specialists and service engineers at TAP’s US facility near Wilmington, Delaware, so that government scientists can be assured of responsive, professional after-sales care for their systems.

Cathy Maloney, TAP Biosystems’ North American Sales Director commented: “We are delighted to be partnering with GSS. They are a small veteran owned business and have an excellent reputation for understanding the government procurement process, actively monitoring order fulfilment, and assisting procurement professionals to maintain administrative compliance. We have listed TAP's leading-edge products on GSA contract through GSS which will streamline the procurement process, making it easier for scientists to rapidly purchase them.”

Ryan Graves, TAP Biosystems, Southeast Sales Executive continued: “The appointment of GSS is very timely as we’re showing our ambr, Fill-It, and RAFT systems at the upcoming NIH Research Festival on October 11th-12th at Booth #418. These products are being used to accelerate the pace of research in many of the US’ leading pharma and biotechs and it is a really good opportunity for government scientists to come and see them, secure in the knowledge that they will be able to easily access and begin using these technologies to advance their bioprocessing or cell-based programs.”
