"The huge level of interest shown by the scientific community in nominating the companies they consider best-in- class validates the prestige these awards confer upon the finalists."
BioInformatics, LLC created a detailed 34-question survey that enables scientists to nominate the supplier offering the best overall solution in categories that reflect the range of products used in academic, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and government labs around the world. The ballot also probes for the reasons behind the scientists' choice and probes for the elements that drive customer satisfaction and loyalty.
