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

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

"Fear not...there are plenty

"Fear not...there are plenty of jobs out there"

Not if you have BioRad on your CV !! Specially for more than 3 years.

'We have hundreds of

'We have hundreds of thousands of customers in over 70 countries. New ones served with a smile everyday. Stop you asinine chatter already on who is a customer and who is not. Morons.'

You can't possibly be a biorad employee - Africa has only 54 countries, not over 70

F**K them. if they want to go

F**K them. if they want to go somewhere else let them.

I think the attitude on this

I think the attitude on this site to anyone who dares to say they have issues with the company speaks volumes about the superiority complex that some of us have towards customers. Would it not be more beneficial to find the reason we lose customers rather than class them all as idiots or liars that we are better off without.

Yes, of course you are. It is

Yes, of course you are. It is easy to pretend to be a customer on here.

This website doesn't support the Hindi or Mandarin character set, so I'd agree that these posters pretending to be customers are definitely impostors.

"Well I'm sorry to tell you I

"Well I'm sorry to tell you I had been a biorad customer for many years but now no longer"

Hey! I'm a customer too and I am dumping Bio-Rad.

"It is easy to pretend to be

"It is easy to pretend to be a customer on here."

Yes I'm sure you would prefer that to be true. After all what customer would ever have the audacity to dump biorad.

No hidden meanings, no

No hidden meanings, no ulterior motive but the best thing I ever did was leave Biorad.

Oh and I'm meaning as a customer.

Think about it.......where

Think about it.......where would they go ? Not many places to go to. No greener pastures around.

If you're getting advice like that from coworkers who have been at Biorad a long time or haven't worked anywhere else in the same capacity, there's your first red flag.

Fear not...there are plenty of jobs out there, there's a whole world out there beyond the irrelevant microscopic world of Biorad.

 

 

"and I suppose "need to stop

"and I suppose "need to stop laughing now and go back to work" Is insightful and perceptive."

The idea of Bio-Rad selling off PCR and Blood transfusion is definitely laughable and ridiculous.

Surely even someone with limited comprehension can see the difference between that that persons comment and yours.

The banter here between companies can be amusing, but when a comment such as yours has absolutely no substance at all, it is just childish name-calling.

"Yours is yet another useless

"Yours is yet another useless throw-off comment that adds no value to the discussion."

Really?

and I suppose "need to stop laughing now and go back to work" Is insightful and perceptive.

Typical of another Biorad hypocrite.

"Yeh. Like anyone at Biorad

"Yeh. Like anyone at Biorad does any work"

Do you seriously believe this???

At any company, no matter what you may think of them, there are passionate people.

Yours is yet another useless throw-off comment that adds no value to the discussion.

"need to stop laughing now

"need to stop laughing now and go back to work"

Yeh. Like anyone at Biorad does any work.

PCR, Transfusion? Clearly you

PCR, Transfusion? Clearly you refer to the break up of CDG and you should start a new thread if you want to discuss it.

This thread is about the systematic break up and selling off of LSG.

"I hear Biorad are selling

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

puh

I suppose Life can ride a reputation built by ABI years ago but goodwill runs out when people realize you don't do anything anymore and half the employees desperately want out.

Bio-Rad has far more R&D than

Bio-Rad has far more R&D than Life these days

But Life is more relevant and more respected by customers, so why waste money in R&D?

"Can anyone imagine the terms

"Can anyone imagine the terms 'R&D' and 'Bio-Rad' in the same sentence?"

You are right.....mistake is mine !

Face it, Bio-Rad will

Face it, Bio-Rad will eventually get bought. It's just a matter of time.
As a previous poster pointed out, their M&A skills are atrocious, especially on the LSG side. No ROI from any of the acquisitions.
Many people who work there are either incompetent (e.g. North America VP of sales), evil biatches (e.g. RLA) or horndogs (e.g. VP of LSG).
Many people are also good, hard-working folks who get abused by the former three categories.

have a look to all that M&A

have a look to all that M&A the last 5-7 years what a waste of money......good move in some areas.... but unable to get the horse powers on the road.....

'Seriously ?? After so many

And then their seriously flawed integrity policies and dealer/distributor enabled kick-backs.'

Haters need to stop. Biorad now has prime pcr to separate it from everyone else

A company with a whole

A company with a whole catalog of "me too" products, copy-cat technologies and electrophoresis can only last so long. One of the most in-bred companies in biotech.....

I concur with this view

I concur with this view

They are selling a whole lot

They are selling a whole lot more of those systems than Raindance and Life.

so how is that QuantaLife

so how is that QuantaLife acquisition working out?

I'm OK with this view.

I'm OK with this view.

Just got back from the LT

Just got back from the LT board, what a sad state of affairs. This is what happens when your CEO is a megalomaniac. Very sad.

I disagree with this view.

I'm not so sure that they are

I'm not so sure that they are selling because they "can". They might be selling because the bottom has dropped out of the life science market and large players who have bought millions in sales though billions in acquisitions have little choice. I have not looked at Life's financials closely... but is this a possibility?

One thing is for sure... those poor Life employees are going to see a hell that I wouldn't wish on anyone.

Idiot, a sale of large

Idiot, a sale of large industry player will always generate interest. Ask yourself why these greedy bastards are selling dimwit.

Yes, 'large industry player' is the operative phrase here. The 'greedy bastards' are selling because they can, and can profit handsomely due to the relevance Life has in the industry. Bio-Rad could only dream to have as many potential suitors wanting to line up to buy it (we're assuming Mr. S isn't quietly shopping offers, of course).

"Even Life on the sale block

"Even Life on the sale block gets more discussion"

Hmmm.... a huge company is likely to slowly and deliberately dismantled and sold of in bits and pieces vs. a company where not a whole lot appears to be going on? That is like being dumbfounded that traffic is slowed to see a bloody car accident and not paying attention to a person changing their tire. wow.

So how is prime pcr

So how is prime pcr doing....?

No one talks about them

No one talks about them because they're irrelevant; Even Life on the sale block gets more disucssion
