Assay Depot, a San Diego, California, CA-based marketplace for scientific services, raised $3m in Series B funding.
The round was led by Bootstrap Venture Fund.
The company intends to use the funds for continued growth of its research sourcing platform.
Led by Kevin Lustig Ph.D., CEO, Assay Depot operates a network of public and private online marketplaces for scientists inside large pharmaceutical companies to find experts at 9,000 global research suppliers (aka CROs) and purchase services in more than 500 research areas.
Each private research marketplace serves as an end-to-end vendor relationship management (VRM) system that can be used to capture scientist feedback in the form of ratings and reviews.
