Lab space available December 1A BSL2 lab space with combination of lab/office (~10k sqft) is available in Woodbridge at 4 Research Drive beginning December 1st. The lab space is “as is” and is newly renovated, state-of-the-art lab space that can be subdivided up to the three sections. It can also be fully leased as one tenant’s space. The facility is controlled by a security system and the parking lot is newly paved.

Interested parties should contact Rich Horgan via email or phone (607.215.6401).

Top of mind this week:1) Tuesday, the BioCT team spent the day with MassBio and Thermo Fisher reviewing our purchasing program partnership and how to better support our member companies. As a reminder, BioCT members save an average of 40%+ on lab supplies and lab equipment from Thermo Fisher, plus free standard delivery. This is one of the myriad of discounts available in our BioCTEdge program. For more information contact Benjamin Fitzpatrick.

2) Wednesday I kicked off a “space” committee with Tim Miller of AdvanceCT and Chris Ostop of JLL. If you have lab space available to rent or are in need of space please reach out we have a comprehensive list and exist to provide support
