Many thanks to Susan Bird for this news story and quick update on the life sciences sector in Scotland – Rebecca
Scientific Laboratory Supplies (SLS), the UK’s largest independent British-owned supplier of scientific equipment, chemicals and consumables has relocated its Scottish operations to BioCity Scotland, showing its commitment to investing in science in Scotland. BioCity Scotland provides biotech, pharmaceutical and healthcare companies with high spec laboratories and office space, as well as access to expertise, finance and support and already has more space occupied than any other incubator in Scotland.
BioCity Scotland was recently granted Enterprise Area status, which provides additional incentives for companies joining the facility. Other developments at the site include the forthcoming launch of MediCity Scotland later this autumn, which will support the commercialisation of medical technologies, and the opening of the Innovation Hub for early stage companies.
