Corporate Partners

Working Group
The turtle shell - Frederic Bonnet

BioImaging North America (BINA) is a symbiotic network of scientists and partners spanning all sectors of the imaging and microscopy community. For researchers, working in both core facilities and individual labs, a close partnership with the companies who design and manufacture microscope hardware and software products is mutually beneficial and of critical importance. The Corporate Partners Working Group aims to build and maintain relationships with all microscopy stakeholders within these priorities: Engagement & Partnership.

Engagement & Partnership

  • Building understanding of the respective challenges facing all members of the bioimaging community, including both academic and corporate partners.
  • Develop relationships with key commercial stakeholders across the microscopy and imaging space to encourage and facilitate industry-research partnership and engagement, and training;
  • Provide a platform to facilitate identification of partners for companies to work as a collective to optimize vision, utility, and functionality of current and future devices.

Equipment Donation – Seeding Labs Instrumental Access program

Do you have lab equipment/instruments you’d like to donate, or does your university need affordable lab equipment for teaching and research? Seeding Labs is a US-based NGO dedicated to increasing access to resources for science in parts of the world that have historically been excluded. We invite you to learn more about donations and/or apply for equipment through their Instrumental Access program, which connects universities in developing countries with high-quality laboratory equipment and supplies. Please see their website for more details.
