TORONTO, June 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Independent life science product review site now includes 36 types of custom research services
1DegreeBio.org launches its custom services listings today, where providers can list their custom research services for life scientists. The new listings will allow 1DegreeBio's online community of more than 75,000 scientists to easily find custom research service providers, as well as review services they've used.
"We are very excited to add custom research services to 1DegreeBio," said Alex Hodgson, Managing Director, 1DegreeBio. "We've seen a huge increase in the number of service providers in recent years. This has made it challenging for providers to connect with customers and difficult for customers to identify the best provider for their needs. Our service listings will simplify that process."
The listings are searchable by company and type of service, including custom antibodies, assays, cloning, gene synthesis, cell line services, custom proteins/peptides and gene profiling. Like other products on 1DegreeBio, service providers are ranked in search by community reviews and recommendations.
"As a research service provider, we applaud independent sites like 1DegreeBio promoting accountability and quality in our industry," said Alan Sawyer, Founding Director, Paratopes Ltd., a UK based, spin-off company of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory's Monoclonal Antibodies Core Facility. "These listings will help consumers quickly find the provider they need, and promote the visibility of top quality service providers."
The listings complement 1DegreeBio's existing independent database of research-grade antibodies and kits. The new service listings may be found at http://services.1degreebio.org.
"1DegreeBio's continued expansion into new life science products and services will go a long way to help scientists to find the best provider in a rapidly growing pool of options," said Hodgson. "We are proud to support the scientific community in this way, so they can keep doing great research."
