LabRoots.com Increases Functionality and BioConference Live Explodes with Growth

We are delivering the most popular functions of social networking and I am confident LabRoots.com and BioConference Live will become the platforms the scientific community from around the world use on a routine basis

LabRoots Inc, an internet business launched its professional networking site for the science industry in early 2008 called LabRoots.com. Aside from giving scientists a place to share their expertise and learn from one another, LabRoots.com offers scientists the latest advanced data mining tools to improve scientist-to-scientist communication. LabRoots.com reaches a global audience encompassing scientists from all disciplines including Life Sciences, Clinical Diagnostics, Medicine, Environment, Earth, Space, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, Computer Sciences, Mathematics, and Veterinary Sciences.

"Since the launch three years LabRoots has grown dramatically in all aspects of the business. We have increased functionality such as the addition of Videos which is currently free to post and view," said LabRoots CEO Greg Cruikshank, "We also launched a Free virtual event arm to the company called BioConference Live, which we are super excited about and is growing much faster than we anticipated. BioConference Live makes it easier and more cost-effective for the community to come together online through live video webcasts, a virtual exhibit hall, and real-time networking. BioConference Live Summer: Clinical Diagnostics is coming up June 15-16, and we expect more than 10,000 attendees."

Social networking has revolutionized communication and how information is shared. These sites are being used by millions of people every day and their use is growing rapidly. There appears to be frustration with users of social networking sites as the sites are becoming too large, making it difficult to connect with others sharing the same interests. Advertisers are faced with similar concerns, as their messages may be lost in the noise of large social networking sites. Scientists will benefit from LabRoots.com ability to provide specific content of interest, while advertisers benefit from LabRoots.com ability to precisely target the right customer for their product or service.

“Our focus is to help science professional’s network, learn, and build relationships that matter,” said LabRoots CEO Greg Cruikshank, “We are delivering the most popular functions of social networking and I am confident LabRoots.com and BioConference Live will become the platforms the scientific community from around the world use on a routine basis.”

The LabRoots and BioConference Live management team brings together over 100 years of combined business experience and 30 years of combined business start-up experience. LabRoots has assembled a premier team for their advisory board with members from both academia and industry. LabRoots.com is maintained by a team of moderators with a proven track record in the scientific industry who will help ensure that LabRoots.com is well received in the industry.
