Alliance Biosciences Announces Trade Mission to Singapore with Speaker Presentation at International Lab Design Seminar

RICHMOND, Va., Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Ryan Burnette, Director of Alliance Biosciences will lead a trade mission to Singapore January 19, 2009 through January 23, 2009. Dr. Burnette will be promoting the need for international accreditation processes for high-containment biomedical labs as a lynchpin to an effective biosecurity and biosafety preparedness program.

"I am very excited to visit Singapore, a progressive country that has embraced the need for well-designed and operated containment labs and operations," said Dr. Burnette. "I look forward to meeting with academic, governmental and private sector leaders to discuss ways to utilize solid accreditation standards as a foundation for best practices in research and manufacturing, and to partially mitigate the risks of bio-terrorism."

During his visit, Dr. Burnette will speak at the Lab Design Seminar taking place January 19th - 20th at Biopolis, the biomedical R&D hub at one-north, a 200 hectare vibrant hotspot for R&D innovation and test-bedding. Organized by JTC Corporation, the master developer for one-north, the inaugural seminar, a first for Singapore, will be the ideal networking forum for international thought leaders, scientists, developers and other professionals to come together to exchange invaluable insights and experiences on specialty lab design.

"Biopolis has seeded the Biomedical research industry in Singapore and garnered international attention," said Philip Su, Assistant Chief Executive Officer, JTC Corporation. "We are privileged to have Dr. Burnette speak at this event, which will encourage greater sharing between design professionals from all over the world, and break boundaries between different international practices."

On January 20th at 4:15pm, Dr. Burnette will deliver a presentation titled "Working Toward Accreditation Standards". The speech will highlight the significant need for international accreditation standards for high-containment biomedical labs, and will discuss the major similarities and differences of efforts underway in Europe, Canada, the U.S. and other countries to develop benchmarks for design and operational standards of excellence.

"JTC Corporation has created a tremendous forum for international leaders to convene, share ideas and best practices," stated Burnette. "With increased awareness of the need for accreditation standards we will continue to progress toward developing such a platform."
