Italian CRO moves lab to industrial park co-op
Italian pesticide registration service provider Biotecnologie BT has agreed a deal with the Parco Tecnologia Padano (PTP) industrial park to transfer its testing facility, the Biospheres laboratory, there. PTP companies are specialised in research and genomics. Biotecnologie BT will send 15 researchers to work alongside established companies at the park. Chairman Vincenzo Consiglio welcomes the relocation. “This is just the beginning of a programme to co-operate with those firms and start-up companies already located within the structure and with the chemical companies working in the Lombard region, as well,” he says. Biotecnologie BT is approaching new sectors, especially microbiology and genetics, through collaboration with companies at PTP, it adds.
