Called in when construction projects are moving scientists, btr, inc., bridges the communication gaps between construction teams and researchers, clinicians and staff.
With over 15 years of experience at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), we have helped out with the Vaccine Research Center (Building 40), the Biodefense and Emerging Infectious Defenses Center (Building 33), and are currently assisting the construction team for F Wing Project (Building 10 renovation).
The intricate process of procurement can be a challenge to scientists, and btr has a long history of assisting scientists to procure what they need, and make their way through the complications of government procurement.
Taking the guesswork out of the process, identifying alternative sources for difficult reagents, and obtaining discounts from suppliers, our talented staff makes procurement work for the lab, not against it.
Coupled with our Lab Management Services, our procurement assistance allows the lab to focus on doing the amazing research and clinical investigations that move science forward.
btr's managment system ensures that labs have the supplies, reagents and chemicals they need to perform their work. Our supply tracking database covers routine needs, while our skilled staff keep up with the special requirements so inevitable in biomedical research.
Starting in 1994, with customers in the National Cancer Institute (NCI), and the National Center for Human Genome Research Center, (NHGRI), btr continues to serve many fine labs on the NIH campus. Best of all, the staff is cross trained, to make sure needs are met all year, without interruption.
Born of a life long love of horses, Sarah and Glenn breed and raise Welsh Thoroughbred ponies on their farm in Virginia. The ponies are born on the farm, and spend the first years of their life romping in the hilly fields, crossing the stream, and enjoying life with the dogs and chickens.
Handled from birth, the ponies are slowly introduced to as much as they can take. Quiet and sensible, little Cinco (Blue Dust, born on Cinco de Mayo) went in the July 4th paradre with his mom, Pixie, at just a few months old.
Our ponies are around the country, showing in California, Long Island, New Jersey and Texas. We have a five year old gelding, and 4 month old filly.
