With the opening of our new lab equipment showroom in Watertown, we’re now officially part of the Boston life sciences community.  And to celebrate, we held an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, December 6.

Dr. Sue Windham-Bannister, president and CEO of the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center, the agency set up to implement Governor Deval Patrick’s Life Sciences Initiative, was on hand to welcome us.

“With more than 500 biopharma companies calling our state home, I am confident that BioSurplus will find Massachusetts to be a great place to do business,” said Dr. Windham-Bannister.  “We look forward to collaborating with BioSurplus as they become an important part of the Massachusetts Life Sciences Supercluster.”

The open house was the perfect setting for a debut of another sort – our new signature cocktail, the Minus80.   We hope you’ll take a moment to scroll down and check out our photo of the very cool (pun intended) ice sculpture which helped to lend veracity to the drink’s title.  We hope you’ll get the chance to try one for yourself at one of our upcoming events, such as Cinco de Bio.

You can read more about our new Boston location and the grand opening on the Boston Globe’s website, as well as in today’s Boston Herald.

For those of you who were unable to make it to the party yesterday, we hope you’ll drop by soon.  Our new Boston address is 57 Water St., Watertown, MA, 02472.
