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.

""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.
