With the largest volume of website traffic in the life sciences, BioSpace.com has established the global hubsite for the industry. The company will now be providing its audience, who already rely on BioSpace.com for a variety of content and commerce services, the capability to buy and sell supplies in an auction format. The first BioSpace.com auction will remain open until August 4, 2000, with ongoing bidding on a wide selection of mostly new and refurbished products provided by some of the industry's top suppliers. In addition, there will be a number of genuinely unique items, such as life science related Internet domain names and consultation sessions with an established industry venture capitalist, up for bids. "We're naturally tremendously excited about the launch of our first auction event," said Scott Clarke, CEO of BioSpace.com.
