Testimonial

“BioCT has been a key partner in supporting the growth of Arvinas.

BioCT is instrumental in advocating for positive legislative agendas that help eliminate and/or adjust bills harmful to Connecticut’s bioscience community. Additionally, as a BioCT member, we take advantage of the New England Edge (NEE) savings program which provides discounted lab and office supplies.

Once we reviewed our lab expenditures along side the discounts available through the New England Edge program, we found the potential savings well worth the change. We saved 58% on lab expenditures for those vendors in the program in 2020 and 65% in 2021. Our savings more than cover Arvinas’ annual BioCT membership and support the legislative successes that BioCT drives in the state.”
