Finalists Announced for 2007 Life Science Industry Awards

The Scientist Magazine Releases the Names of the 28 Finalists for Excellence Award

PHILADELPHIA, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/30/07 -- Finalists have been announced for the 2007 Life Science Industry Awards, which recognize those life science suppliers that are best-in-class in both product categories and customer communications and support categories. The 28 finalists represent the three companies receiving the highest overall score in each of 20 award categories. The finalists were selected from the more than 500 companies nominated.

In all, over 3,000 scientists voted between January 3 and February 16, 2007. These respondents, based on their experiences using scientific products, voted for their favorite suppliers -- taking into consideration practical factors such as satisfaction with product features, likelihood to purchase or recommend, the best overall solution and cost-effectiveness.

Awarded annually by The Scientist, the magazine of the life sciences, the award has become the benchmark of excellence for companies in the industry. ""The equipment and services that these finalists provide are an essential part of the life science community and our readers," noted Richard Gallagher, Editor and Publisher of The Scientist. "They should be proud of their achievements, especially because they were chosen by scientists who use their products on a day-to-day basis."

The winners of the 2007 Life Science Industry Awards will be announced in mid-April during the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Meeting in Los Angeles. Finalists, winners and press will be invited to take part in a conference call for the announcement. A full review, including winner profiles will be published in the May issue of The Scientist. Full details of the events will be posted at http://www.LifeScienceIndustryAwards.com.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
