Biomedical Technology Support Centre



Objectives

  • To ensure the availability of various sophisticated instruments to the researchers.
  • To provide quality technical support to assist the research activities in the Hong Kong Science Park.
  • To reduce the financial burden for Biotech startups in the acquisition and maintenance of expensive instruments.
  • To enable knowledge sharing and networking among partner companies through various in-house activities, thereby increasing research efficiency and partnership opportunity.

The Biomedical Technology Support Centre was opened in March 2009 to serve the Biomedical Technology cluster:

  • Therapeutics
  • Diagnostics
  • Medical Devices

Today, BSC has a total floor space of over 12, 000 sq. ft.  BSC is a central facility, which comprises a Workstation/Utility Room, Culture Room, Freeze Dryer Room, Mass Spectrometry Laboratory, Microscope Room, Genomics Laboratory, Proteomics Laboratory, Bioanalysis Laboratory and Microbiology Laboratory.  We provide more than 130 pieces of ready-to-use life sciences instruments for shared R&D use.
