One of BiotechTown’s main strengths is its integrated vision of all phases of the Biotechnology and Life Sciences business, which have specific needs. In order to meet the critical demands of this market segment, the center offers an Open Lab structure for startups and companies of all sizes, in order to guarantee predictable costs, avoid capital immobilization or increase productive capacity in initiatives which require specific laboratory structures.
This facilitated and business support structure, still in the process of being implemented (with completion scheduled for 2019), will be certified and will have equipment and professionals trained to develop products.
With a quality management system, details of processes & procedures and rules of use, the Open Lab business model is flexible and the operation is customized according to the needs and possibilities of Biotechnology and Life Sciences companies.
The structure is available, through scheduling, for companies of all sizes and also for individuals. The operation can be customized according to the needs and possibilities of the companies and the prices are flexible and proportional to the use. It will be possible to have a private area within the Open Lab.
BiotechTown, through Open Lab, has expertise in the development of general bio-businesses and health products. The laboratories, that will be in an area of 363m² and licensed by VISA, will have all the necessary equipment for use and the companies will pay for it. In general, other open laboratories that exist in the market do not have similar structure and lack articulation to mobilize partners, in cases of necessity of expansion. In addition, when implemented, Open Lab will be certified to ISO17025 (Good Laboratory Practices).
For these situations, BiotechTown has connections and promotes the interaction of companies with universities and research centers, seeking to form partnerships that can offer laboratory structures that go beyond Open Lab. BiotechTown acts as a facilitator. As a result of this performance perspective, some partnerships have already been implemented, just like the Technological Research Institute (IPT). Other partnerships are under way and new ones can be consolidated on demand.
