BOSTON-based EquipNet has become the latest ‘corporate partner’ for BioCity Scotland, the life sciences hub on the M8 corridor, and the first from the USA.

EquipNet is recognised as one of the world’s leading providers of proactive asset management solutions to life science, biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.

Major companies such as Novartis, Johnson & Johnson, and Merck rely on EquipNet’s services to identify, track, and relocate or sell surplus and idle laboratory instrumentation and manufacturing equipment.

In addition, SMEs and start-up businesses also benefit from the flexible programmes EquipNet deliver.

Says Ben Potenza, vice president, EquipNet: “whether you are part of a five person start-up, or a global giant in Life Sciences, EquipNet can be a critical factor in your ability to save money on the purchase of instrumentation and machinery or provide a large return on your original capital investment by redeploying and selling assets that your company is no longer using.

“In Scotland, the biotech sector is growing like topsy and we can find the right equipment quickly for these SMEs. Pre-owned equipment might be mass spectrometers, NMRs, HPLCs.”

Deployed in over 3,800 facilities with 9,800 plus registered users, EquipNet’s Asset Redeployment Management System (ARMSTM), is by far the most widely used asset tracking software in the world.
