Life Sciences Company Promega UK has announced the winners of its first Helix Sustainability award.

Helix is an onsite radio frequency identification laboratory storage system used to support scientists with their biomedical research in fighting diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s.

The top three institutions are: University of Edinburgh; University of Manchester; and University of Glasgow.

The aim of the awards was to recognise the organisations who had gained the most environmental benefit from having the Helix system.

Calculations were made after considering the number of individual shipments saved and associated packaging costs, including dry ice use.

By using Helix, the top three organisations saved a combined total of 1,000 shipments.
