Digital portal links KC researchers, industry partners

Assay Depot

It’s been two years in the making, but a digital portal now connects 10 Kansas City-area research organizations with one another and with the outside world.

It’s a novel concept designed to allow the organizations to more easily share and seek out scientific resources.

Wayne Carter, CEO of Kansas City Area Life Sciences Institute Inc., said the process began when he met Kevin Lustig, founder of Assay Depot, during one of his first weeks on the job at KCALSI.

Assay Depot originally created internal portals that allowed large companies to find in-house resources. Now, the company has expanded that out through this project with KCALSI by facilitating an overarching portal that connects multiple research organizations.

Involved in this project are the University of Missouri, the University of Kansas, Kansas State University, Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, the University of Kansas Medical Center, Saint Luke’s Health System, Truman Medical Centers, Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics, MRIGlobal and KCALSI.

Now, those organizations can list out the products and services they provide.
