SelectScience Editor-in-Chief Kerry Parker said: “We’re hugely proud to host these awards celebrating communications excellence within the science industry. Many congratulations to all those shortlisted for joining us in championing creativity and effective conversation between scientific manufacturers and scientists. It’s only by working together like this that we can accelerate scientific progress as we need to.”
At the party, the latest winners of a coveted Bronze SelectScience Seal of Quality were also announced: Waters, for its XBridge Columns, BioTek Instruments, for the Synergy™ Neo2 Multi-Mode Reader and PerkinElmer for its EnVision® Multilabel Plate Reader. Among the other attendees were representatives of companies awarded a Seal of Quality over the past year, including Jackson ImmunoResearch and Sartorius.
Seals of Quality recognize the top 0.1% of laboratory products that consistently receive the highest customer review ratings and are designed to enable scientists to see at a glance the instruments and services their peers love the most. There are four levels: Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze. SelectScience has now awarded Seals of Quality to a total of 34 lab products from across the scientific spectrum.
CEO and Co-Founder of SelectScience, Dr. Arif Butt said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our reviewers around the world for sharing their valuable opinions and also to congratulate the Seal of Quality winners, who have been recognized by the people who matter most — their customers.”
