Another Step Toward Integration in all Israel’s Universities

Beer Sheba, Israel - May 2016
This week, laboratory workers, PhD students, and administrators from Israel’s National Institute of Biotechnology (NIB) at Ben-Gurion University attended an introductory presentation of Labsuit - with a view to integrating its comprehensive management tools into their laboratory administration. The Institute, a core part of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, is overseen by a Scientific Advisory Board whose members include, Nobel Laureate, Prof. Sir Aaron Klug OM FRS, and Prof. Raymond Dwek, Founder and Director of Oxford University’s Glycobiology Institute and its spin-off biotechnology company, Oxford GlycoSciences.
“Being invited to such a prestigious organization is vindication of the potential of our tools,” explains Helen Domeshek,” join owner, and founder of Labsuit. “By using our cloud-based inventory system, the Institute and its many laboratories will experience a huge increase in efficiency, saving time, money, and energy - while contributing to environmental preservation.”
The invitation to the NIB came at the request of the VP for R&D at BGU who heard about Labsuit from an acquaintance. “Realizing how our platform could benefit the Institute, he put us in touch with the appropriate people and we organized our presentation.”
About 450 laboratories around Israel and abroad have already joined Labsuit in the two years of its operation. Use of the platform to Universities is free, and offers sharing of valuable chemicals among labs.
During the visit to the Ben-Gurion Campus, Labsuit also presented to the Faculty of Health Sciences, and the Head of Acquisitions.
