The Scientist’s annual Top 10 Innovations competition showcases the most clever and useful advances in life science techniques and products. From disruptive sequencing technology to transformational tweaks on tried-and-true methods, each year’s winners have represented the future of biomedical research. We want to hear from you: whether you are an individual tinkering away at the bench or a company with a dedicated R&D team. What have you brought to market in the past year that could benefit the life sciences? Submit your product or technique for consideration in this year’s competition.

We started the Top 10 Innovations competition more than a decade ago, and over the years we’ve feted some pretty neat products. Last year, our independent panel of expert judges highlighted single-cell sample prep and analysis tools, a next-gen mass spectrometer, a sonic cell sorter, new CRISPR reagents, and much more. As we’ve witnessed in years...

We’re eager to see what products you bring to our attention. Just make sure that the product you’re entering was released after October 1, 2018, and complete a brief questionnaire.

Submissions must be in to us by August 16, so enter today!
