Details of 5,000 UK life science companies and sites have been put online in a new online mapping tool from the government.

Put together by the UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) department, the site - which covers the pharma, biotech and med tech sectors - is intended to help the industry identify potential collaborators, suppliers and customers.

Companies can be searched for on the basis on sector, product group and location and the site has also plugged in some social media details of the companies featured in the database.

The information included in the UK Life Sciences website comes from the the Bioscience and Health Technology Database which is owned by the Office for Life Sciences within the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

Meanwhile, UKTI told the BIA that it had sourced the turnover and employment information featured “from a third party on a commercial basis”, in addition to drawing from reported figures or estimated figures.

“No confidential information has been included in the website but there is the option for companies to opt-out if they prefer,” UKTI added.

Steve Bates, CEO of the BioIndustry Association, said: “The BIA has long advocated that enabling global partners to better see the strength and opportunity within companies in the UK life science ecosystem should be core to UKTI's life science mission and we hope that this new initiative can play a key role.”
