Changchun Nibo Biotech Co., Ltd. is engaged in the research and development of tumor diagnostic reagents. What the company often does is testing. In the past, it encountered many difficulties caused by insufficient funds. “Generally speaking, big scientific research instruments and equipment are too expensive for such companies that are at initial stage of entrepreneurship,” said the leader of Nibo Biotech Co., Ltd., adding, “A few years ago, we would have to collaborate for testing with a laboratory in Beijing. It makes cost high and meanwhile takes time. However, things have now been changed since our partnership was established with the North Lake Biotech Public Service Platform of Jilin Province, cost reduced, development efficiency improved and competitiveness strengthened.” 

“Our focus on the development of biomedical industry and the creation of such platform for shared service is meant to make more good sci-tech achievements transformed to facilitate the rapid development of more small and micro-sized sci-tech enterprises,” said the leader of the North Lake Biotech Platform.

It has attracted more than 90 enterprises for settlement or incubation, with a rental rate of 90%. It has so far put several hi-tech enterprises including Changchun Chenyu Biomedical, Jilin Aowei Biomedical and Kangzhuang Pharmaceutical in high gear from development. 

“Focusing on the introduction, evaluation, cultivation and recommendation of innovative and entrepreneurial projects, we have integrated sci-tech resources, improved the level of platform environment, improved various service systems, promoted cooperative transfer of various projects and completed the transformation of sci-tech achievements. We feel proud to see enterprises out of incubation here, growing from small to big and from weak to strong.”
