As a member of the Bioscience Association of Maine (BioME), your company can save on the cost of goods and services your organization routinely purchases.

BioME, in partnership with Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), the international trade association for the biotechnology industry, offer BioME members discounts and other benefits from leading service providers. There is no additional cost to participate in any of these cost-savings program; they are a benefit of your membership to BioME. Last year, on a national average, a company that spent $1,000-$10,000 on these services saved more than $4,500 off of the list price. That pays for your BioME membership many times over!
