Conversant Bio Honored With Innovation Award

Global Leader in Tissue and Cell Samples Recognized by Alabama Entrepreneurship Group

HUNTSVILLE, AL--(Marketwired - October 20, 2014) - Conversant Bio, a global leader in supplying the highest-quality human tissue and viable cell samples, has been honored with an Innovation Award by Alabama Launchpad as a business and research leader in Alabama.

Alabama Launchpad is a public-private partnership devoted to encouraging and supporting high-growth entrepreneurship in its state. At the group's Innovation and Entrepreneurship Conference, held Sept. 25 in Birmingham, Ala., Alabama Launchpad recognized Conversant Bio with an Innovation Award in the category of Outstanding Product or Service. The company was lauded for its excellent customer service, its contribution to the Alabama business community, and the valuable products it provides to researchers working on cures and drug discoveries for serious diseases.

"We started Conversant because we saw that the research model was broken," says Marshall Schreeder, chief executive officer and co-founder of Conversant Bio. "To address these issues, we developed processes and a system to get researchers the primary tissue samples with viable cells they need early in the discovery and validation process. We are proud that Alabama Launchpad has honored us with an Innovation Award for our efforts."
