The Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center (PABC) announced that Thermo Fisher Scientific has become a founding sponsor supporting the PABC campus in Doylestown, Pa., and their new B+Labs incubator in Philadelphia, where emerging life science companies can accelerate their journey to commercialization.

Philadelphia recently ranked as one of the top markets in the U.S. for life sciences, with continuous growth and $4B in new construction that supports the industry’s expansion. Through PABC’s existing campus and the new B+Labs incubator, PABC serves a critical need in the region for incubator space that includes the same state-of-the-art technologies that are accelerating drug discovery in other major cities. As a founding sponsor of B+Labs, which is a partnership between the PABC and Brandywine Realty Trust, Thermo Fisher will provide its advanced technology and expertise to emerging biotech residents. Data show that early stage biotechs are more successful at raising series A funding, securing larger deal sizes, and achieving success when they are part of an incubator ecosystem. The PABC, with expertise from the Blumberg Institute, is one of the nation’s most successful life science incubators.
