The TLS bioincubator supports the start-up of companies in the Life Sciences sector. A team of professionals with scientific and industrial backgrounds who are specialized in technology transfer processes is responsible for supporting incubated companies at every phase of their development, also by making a consolidated network of experts and consultants available.
The bioincubator is located in Siena at the “Torre Fiorentina” Science Park, where Achille Sclavo founded the homonymous Istituto Sieroterapico e Vaccinogeno Toscano in 1904 and where GSK has located its Research and Development Center, a flagship of Italian and international research.
TLS currently hosts biomedical companies, non-profit research groups and service companies that work in the R&D of new drugs, diagnostics and medical devices, and provides access to a wide range of specialized services, technological platforms and advanced facilities to both incubated companies and external subjects.
The incubation service package includes access to offices and laboratories and the use of instrumentation at competitive costs with respect to market standards. The bio-incubator offers over 3000 m2 of spaces equipped with laboratory modules of up to 150 m2 that are equipped with the most modern technologies. A PCL3 laboratory, an animal facility and common spaces dedicated to analytical equipment are also available to incubated companies.
