Sinclair is Growing

SOT-2019-Sinclair-Research-ExhibitEveryone on the Sinclair Research team appreciated attendees stopping by to visit with us in our booth.  Sinclair is growing and SOT was a nice opportunity to share our facility expansion and service offerings with so many toxicologists and drug developers.

Here are the highlights we shared:

  • Growing Scientific Leadership Team
  • Leaders in Diabetes Research
  • Leaders in Dermal Research
  • Leaders in Animal Health Research
  • Now offering GLP ototoxicity testing
  • Facility expansion will increase capacity by 10%

Who won the prize?

SOT-2019-Sinclair-Research-Flask-Beads57 attendees at SOT 2019 took a guess at how many beads were in this Erlenmeyer flask.  The person with the closet guess without going over won 2 prizes: a pair of noise canceling headphones and a donation in their honor to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).

Guesses ranged from 388 all the way up to 65,050.  The actual number of beads in the flask was:


The closest guess without going over was 7,216 provided by Vincent R. form Astex Pharmaceuticals.  Congratulations Vincent on your estimation skills!
