Biomedical Research Supply Core (BIORESCO "Freezer Program")
Tenants of the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) BioPark are eligible to participate in the Discount "Freezer Program" offered by the UM Biomedical Research Supply Core (BIORESCO). In operation at the University of Maryland, Baltimore for nearly 20 years, BIORESCO's mainstay service is purchasing items and services utilized in research labs from more than 50 vendors. The items are procured at discounted prices and are re-sold to researchers at a lesser cost than that which they would pay, if ordering directly. Located in the UMB School of Medicine, BIORESCO's proximity to the BioPark allows timely, and in most cases, same day delivery.
New Accounts: Tenants who enroll in BIORESCO will receive a $250 credit toward their first order.
