Bionow moves to MSP

A membership organisation for the biomedical community in the North West has taken office space on Manchester Science Parks' Oxford Road site.

Bionow also has a base at the Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus, jointly owned by Langtree, Science & Technology Facilities Council, North West Development Agency and Halton Council.

Geoff Davison, chief executive of Bionow, said: "Manchester Science Park offers fantastic facilities and business support in a well positioned location for the nearby biomedical cluster.

"The region is one of the UK's top biomedical locations and we are now ideally located to serve and have access to the world-class facilities and expertise on offer and enable businesses within the sector to access significant value more effectively."

Bionow has moved from being funded by the NWDA to becoming a company limited by guarantee with a membership subscription model.

Lynne Barlow, commercial director at MSP, added: "We are very pleased that Bionow has decided to locate at msp and are sure that our proximity to the nearby biomedical clusters and our association with the Royal Eye Hospital development will contribute to its ongoing success."

Details of the rental agreement were undisclosed.
