Win-Win at BioCity Scotland Show

After a very successful conference and exhibition to mark the opening of our new office at BioCity, Scotland, it was an added bonus that we also made someone very happy.

We ran a competition based on the SLS timeline. Shauna Kerr, Research Technician, University of Glasgow was the lucky winner and she had this to say about the experience “Just to say what a great turnout at the SLS Scotland Lab Show. It was a really well organised and informative day. It is great that SLS took the time out to bring us to the lovely new BioCity Office – and the days program of speakers and supplier exhibition stands, made it one of the best Lab Shows I have attended. I hope more of these days are in the pipeline.”
