Other Communal Laboratory Services

Welcome to Biotech Support Centre (BSC)

Objectives:
  1. To ensure the availability of various R&D tools or platforms for supporting researchers.
  2. To provide quality technical support in assisting local life science research activities.
  3. To reduce the financial burden for life science startups in the acquisition and maintenance of expensive instruments.
  4. To enable knowledge sharing and networking among partner companies through various in-house activities, thereby enhancing research efficiency and partnership opportunity.
 
The BSC was opened in March 2009 to serve the Biotech cluster in the areas of:
  1. Therapeutics
  2. Medical devices and diagnostics
  3. Chinese medicine
  4. Regenerative medicine
  5. Molecular tools and reagents
 
Today, BSC has a total floor space of about 8,700 sq. ft.  It is a central facility, which comprises Workstation/Utility Room, Culture Room, Dark Room, Mass Spectrometry Laboratory, Microscope Room, Genomics Laboratory, Proteomics Laboratory, Bioanalysis Laboratory, Microbiology Laboratory, and Server Room.  We provide more than 60 pieces of ready-to-use life sciences instruments for shared R&D use.
 
In addition to the laboratory instruments, BSC also offers world-class Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), University Advanced Laboratory Equipment Collaboration Programme (an extended laboratory instrument service), and Convenience Laboratory Product Purchase Plan (CLPPP – a common laboratory consumable stock room service) to the life science community.


Convenience Laboratory Product Purchase Plan (CLPPP)

Scope

  1. Offer central stock room service for commonly used laboratory consumables, e.g. pipette tips, sample plates/vials, HPLC columns, agar … etc
  2. Laboratrory product purchase service for partner companies in Hong Kong Science Park

 

Objectives and Benefits

  1. Provide one stop shopping for commonly used laboratory products to Hong Kong Science Park partner companies
  2. Reduce the lead time for laboratory product purchase
  3. Save space for stocking laboratory product inventory (the stock room is in the Biotech Centre)
  4. Maximize expense saving for laboratory products (negotiated price through bulk purchase from the pool of Hong Kong Science Park partner companies)
  5. Reduce procurement paper work (one stop shopping at Hong Kong Science Park)
  6. Enhance productivity and efficiency
