                                                                                                                                                                                                                    SUPPORTING INDUSTRY
The concentrated cluster of pharmaceutical plants in Singapore has created many opportunities for product and service providers supporting the pharmaceutical manufacturers. Over the past decade, this pool of supporting companies has grown steadily, with many bolstering their portfolio of products and services to cater to the increasingly sophisticated needs of their clientele. Given Singapore’s central location in Asia, many international companies have also elected to set up their regional headquarters here to capitalise on its excellent connectivity to the Asia Pacific region to market their products and services to the region.
Companies offering products and services to both the R&D and manufacturing sub-sectors of the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and biotech industry are featured in the directory sections of this guide.
However, the reader should note that the inclusion of these companies in the directory listings is not an endorsement of their products or services by the publishers. The directory is simply an attempt by the publishers to create a level platform for companies to promote their products and services.
EQUIPMENT PURCHASE
Many foreign researchers in Singapore are amazed by the wide variety of choices available for scientific equipment and
products here. Not only are
products from America
and Europe commonly
available, distributors
and dealers here also
introduce products from
other parts of Asia and
Australasia, especially
Japan, Korea and
Australia. The enormous
equipment variety available
here sometime poses a serious challenge for a new procurement officer. While the choices may be plenty, one downside about operating here is that some of these equipment or reagents may take a while to arrive at your doorstep. It is not uncommon for supplier to state a lead time of 6 – 8 weeks on quotations. There are, of course, always exceptions and some suppliers may carry items ex-stock. It is thus wise to plan ahead and check the lead time before committing to a purchase.
On top of that, most lab products are sold via distributorships in Singapore. Therefore, in addition to just associating products with brands, there is an additional need to associate brand / products with distributors. In an attempt to help you navigate the local lab equipment trading scene better, we have included a lab products directory as part of this guide.
The directory is divided into three sections:
1. An A-Z listing of most lab equipment / products / service suppliers in Singapore.
2. A Company / Product Matrix to help you identify “who-sells-what” in Singapore.
3. A Brand Listing to help you identify “who-sells-what-brand” in Singapore.
The listings here are by no means exhaustive. In fact, we have only included relevant companies who have contributed advertisements in the Company / Product Matrix as well as the Brand Listing. It remains our aim to include as many relevant companies as we can in subsequent editions, and we may expand the listings to beyond lab products companies in the next issue. If your company would like to be contacted for listing in subsequent issues, please feel free to drop us a note at pharmbioguide@1st-phase.com. We will contact you when we begin to compile the next edition.
