(April 24, 2014. Boston, MA) The Life Science Consortium of North Shore (LSCNS) (http://www.lscnorthshore.org ) continues to expand and grow. The recent relocation of analytical instrumentation for the Chemical Analysis & Instrumentation Lab at Endicott College is now housed in the new $17 million School of Business and Science Center is evidence of this effort.
Gene Wong, PhD, Dean, School of Arts & Science worked for almost a year to try and plan the relocation of Endicott’s instrumentation suite and subsequent servicing, and experienced significant challenges in response times from the vendor initially contacted to assist with the project. With a deadline fast approaching, and without resolution, he contacted North Shore InnoVentures, one of the founding members of the LSCNS, and got in touch with Overbrook Support Services (http://www.theoverbrookgroup.com). Overbrook is a professional services firm that conducts moves/relocations of analytical instrumentation for industry, academia, and research institutions nationwide.
Overbrook assisted in taking care of Dr. Wong’s needs. A scope of work, pricing, schedule, plan and shortly thereafter, relocation of his mass spectrometry and chromatography instrumentation was conducted. Working with Endicott contracted movers, Overbrook conducted an onsite walk through and within a matter of days, performed the de-installation, move, and re-installation. Then Overbrook provided full maintenance and operation of the instrumentation to Dr. Wong’s satisfaction.
Overbrook, an independent professional services firm consisting of three operating groups, provides business improvement services for a diverse range of laboratories throughout North America and the world. Founded in 2001, the firm is known for its knowledge, breadth of experience and high level of customer service.
