News: Life Science Industry Awards 2019: Innovation


Since 2002, the Life Science Industry Awards recognize the innovative manufacturers of the “tools of science” that help advance biological research and drug discovery. Traditionally, the Life Science Industry Awards have been a bi-annual event where thousands of life scientists nominate and vote for the best performing supplier in 10 distinct customer support, service and communications categories.

This year, the Life Science Industry Awards have expanded to include three new categories to recognize the most innovative new products released this year.

The winners of the new Life Science Industry Awards – Innovation will be announced via a webinar on November 20th, 2019.
