LabCentral is a shared laboratory workspace for life-sciences and biotech startups in Kendall Square.
With access to the Science Exchange marketplace, the startups will have access to more than 2,500 service providers that have been qualified through the ISO 9001-certified evaluation process.
“The use of outsourced services is becoming increasingly important to life science and biotech companies large and small, and that’s true for our resident start-ups,” Johannes Fruehauf, LabCentral co-founder and president told Outsourcing-Pharma.com.
“Science Exchange has developed a unique ‘no-headache’ platform to streamline the process – making it easy to access services without having to negotiate each individual transaction,” he added. “That was very attractive to us, since we’re all about removing barriers to help our companies meet their milestones faster and cost-effectively.”
Science Exchange was certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework in July of this year after completing a seven-step process to demonstrate compliance with various data protection requirements.
Also in July, the company partnered with IndieBio to provide the incubator with its services.
