Bio-Rad LSG: Why doesn't anyone here talk about it?

Have they become that irrelevant in the industry, or are they that perfect?

What about the SensiQ

What about the SensiQ Pioneer?

If you dont know it you should.

"This is the second year that

"This is the second year that Bio-Rad has been in the red. Perhaps they should hire experienced managers from outside the company instead of promoting from within."

Rumor has it there's a major reorg going on in NASD (LSG). Your inexperienced manager could be on the chopping block.

This is the second year that Bio-Rad has been in the red. Perhaps they should hire experienced managers from outside the company instead of promoting from within.

I would say they become more

I would say they become more and more irrelevant - investing hugh amounts of money - loosing business day by day - develop the circle twice - ROI is far away! ....so what should be perfect?

I'd like to know this too.

I'd like to know this too. (what the name is of the injection molder in Santa Rosa that they bought. Did anyone come up with a name? Thanks in advance!

XPR? GE & Forte are light

XPR? GE & Forte are light years ahead of BR on all levels. I have every SPR system up and running in my lab, except the XPR system. Decommissioned it ages ago. The proteon doesn't even compare to a biacore or octet system. Innovation? A little too late.

Heard rumors about the next

Heard rumors about the next generation XPR system...........is it true?

Senior management never

Senior management never leaves.
BC, the LSG PResident, been there for his entire career. He'll be able to retire anytime.
COO has been there forever too.
Division VPs, TT, SH, and AT have been there forever with TT and SH never having worked anywhere else.
It's like an inbred family.
They wouldn't be able to survive in a real company with real shareholders.

Most of the turnover is in

Most of the turnover is in sales. The average rep usually lasts 18 months, give or take a few months.

"Why is there so much turnover in this company?"

Bio-Rad probably has one of the lowest turnover rates because you just have to have a pulse to keep your job there. The place is full of clock-punchers and brown-nosers that just collect a paycheck. Why would any of the losers want to leave that job. Only the good people leave Bio-Rad.

Clearly you're not up to date on innovation in our industry. PrimePCR and the QX100 have propelled Bio-Rad to the leading position in the industry.

Exactly..I don't understand the hate; I'm proud to be a part of biorad

How's the new cell sorter

How's the new cell sorter business going? Have they sold one yet?

What about the next gen chromatography? Have they achieved 5% market share yet? GE owns this market no matter what Bio-Rad does. The next gen chromatography system is about ten years too late.

Bio-Rad's best hope is that Thermo completely screws up the LifeTech integration giving them an opening to expand their markets.
They don't control their own destiny.

'How's Prime' Seeing that

'How's Prime'

Seeing that it's being offered in the Biorad site at 50% off and reps have been given an ultimatum to sell a specific minumum amount by the end of Q2 or else, it must be doing well - for a typical Biorad new product launch.

You should have started looking last year.

"Biorad hasn't even placed 5

"Biorad hasn't even placed 5 of these units year-to-date in the US. At least that's 5 more than Life, Raindance, or any other phantom bogeyman competitor currently not manufacturing anything."

Lulz.
>hasn't even placed 5 of these units year-to-date in the US
>5 units

Sonnie, you're so far off the mark it's funny. And this is coming from someone who does not even work for them. I think the butt-hurt jealousy is bleeding through a bit too hard around here.

;)

'Fluidigm Biomark? Life

'Fluidigm Biomark? Life Tech/ABI Openarray? Raindance Raindrop? At least the first two have publications for their platforms. I don't see any for Raindance. Sorry Raindance supporters, but that is not a really good sign. Even Biorad's system has some publications... not many, but something.'

who is coming? who?

Guess how many instruments

Guess how many instruments their chief dPCR competitor, RainDance, has placed? ZERO! AT, is that you?

If you worked anywhere else outside biorad, you would have understood that Raindance was never a serious competitor. While you're busy focusing on competing units that don't exist, another company is going to come in and steal your kosher lunch.

"At least the copycat 'new

"At least the copycat 'new products' were functional (for the most part) and with a awaiting market. The same can't be said for ddPCR; ddPCR R&D is practically still being done on the fly with every demo and rare placement that happens."

Hahahahahaha. Jelly much! In fact the QX100 is so functional that it sells itself. Lots and lots of big names are using the QX100, with more and more being placed each month. Guess how many instruments their chief dPCR competitor, RainDance, has placed? ZERO!

Hahahahahahaha I'm loving how inaccurate the external views are with regard to the success of BR's acquisition of QL, the instruments produced there, etc. Lotta butthurt, jealous, ignorant little saps out there, eh?
