Yorkshire Bioscience Limited is a
private independent company based at the Biocentre of York Science Park.
The Company aims to be a primary manufacturer and supplier of reagents
and consumables, as well as offering comprehensive research services for
customers in the bioscience community of the UK and worldwide.
Our employees are
highly skilled scientists with more than 5 years experience of work in
academia and industry.
Our products are dedicated to
laboratories dealing with nucleic acids, proteins and nucleotides, and are
really the fuel for the majority of their work: DNA manipulation - cloning,
sequencing, mutagenesis; gene expression; genetic, infectious or somatic
disorder diagnostics; protein detection; cell culture works, and many others. We
also do research on the design of novel DNA polymerases, molecular weight
markers, modified nucleotides, antibodies and recombinant proteins.
We offer absolutely new approaches for providing research services to customers.
Modern bioscience is highly sophisticated and demands skilled scientists,
expensive equipment and reagents. There is also a cost for time from about £5/h
for students to £10-20/h for experienced staff. The quicker a project runs the
less it costs, and science becomes more efficient meaning less pressure on
tax-payers or charity donators. Usually, modern projects start with simple steps
like DNA cloning, gene synthesis, mutagenesis, reaction optimization,
heterologous gene overexpression and raising polyclonal or monoclonal antibodies
against target proteins. This job is usually time-consuming and routine in most
of laboratories, involves collaborating laboratories or occasional services and
contract research. Moreover, the result is not always clear-cut, and starting
from scratch can become standard practice. Sometimes a whole project can be
backed up or delayed because of a failure at the start. Our offer is simple: the
customer gives us those early stages to undertake as a single research service,
and we deliver it with a guarantee of quality and complete confidentiality. All
rights for material or intellectual properties will belong to the customer, who
will be charged after completion of project when they have seen the results and
are satisfied with the report and quality. That job will be done by us
quickly and professionally. The customer just provides the idea we deliver it
What does make Yorkshire Bioscience unique in such a competitive market as Life
Science? A key strength is that we have great support from organizations
involved in biotechnology development in York. Our team is highly motivated to
achieve success. We have a world-wide network of collaborators, contract
researchers and consultants. They are skilled scientists working in academic and
industry institutions. Because of that we are able to provide a comprehensive
service in almost all kinds of laboratory work. For any demand of our customers
we can find specialists who can provide the corresponding service or
consultation. Yorkshire Bioscience is like the top of iceberg or a window to
market giving access to hundreds of researchers. Their new ideas are quickly
converted into products to benefit the scientific community.
