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.

BioInformatics, LLC, the premier market research and advisory firm serving the life science industry, was selected by The Scientist to collect and tabulate the votes for the prestigious awards. "The Life Science Industry Awards continue to enjoy a special prestige because they are conferred by the international life science community," said Bill Kelly, President.

Contextual Analytics of various threat data provides a deeper understanding of a given threat and enables identification of unknown threat vectors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Dufour, Head of Security Architecture, IoT, Webroot, Inc., discussed how through the use of Big Data analytics and deep data correlation across different threat types, it is possible to gain a better understanding of where, how and to what level of danger a malicious actor poses to an organization, and to determin...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...

As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
