The Life Science Industry Awards® allow thousands of scientists to individually vote for their favorite life science supplier companies in multiple product and service categories. We field an online survey to solicit nominations from our online community of scientific experts, The Science Advisory Board. The winners for each award category are determined by a rigorous statistical analysis of the results to calculate a Customer Value Score for each supplier. The Customer Value score is used to determine the ranking of each company based not only on the number of votes received but also on the depth of the company’s customer loyalty and satisfaction. Included in each category is a “best-in-class” ranking chart that identifies the five Finalists and the company selected as Winner.
