Posted by BCI Staff on Tue, Apr 05, 2011

One of the year’s best Pennsylvania laboratory science market events is approaching in less than 8 weeks.  This year the BioResearch Product Faire™ Vendor Show at the University of Pennsylvania is expected to attract over 400 university science researchers actively seeking new products and services for life science research. 

In 2010, this vendor show on campus at the University of Pennsylvania attracted over 500 academic researchers. 

  • Exhibitor’s surveys from the 2010 BioResearch Product Faire revealed that on average, each exhibitor had 58 visitors view their products and demonstrations. 
  • Of those visits, exhibitors reported an average of 17 excellent quality leads.
  • Exhibitors reported an average product value of $10,000. 


This vendor show exhibit drew UPenn scientists seeking lab products from multiple departments around campus.  The departments that had the most active attendee participation included:

  • 47 from the Biochemistry/Biophysics Department
  • 37 from the Genetics Department
  • 36 from the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
  • 36 from the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology
  • 34 from the Neurosciences Department
  • 33 from the Department of Medicine
  • 32 from the Chemistry Department
  • 31 from the Biology Department

Consider these funding statistics on the University of Pennsylvania:

  • In 2010, Penn received close to $1 Billion in medical research endowments.
  • The University of Pennsylvania has 165 active research centers and institutes.

On February 4th the University of Pennsylvania broke ground on the Krishna P. Singh Nanotechnology Center.  This $80 Million Research Facility was made possible in part because of a $20 Million gift from Krishna P. Singh.

On May 20, 2011, researchers and laboratory supply and science companies are welcome to attend the 11th Annual BioResearch Product Faire™ Vendor Show on campus at the University of Pennsylvania.
