Seeking Laboratory Start-Up Consultants to work on 4 new start up projects that will be opening blood testing laboratories across 4 cities.
You will be paid a consultancy fee on a weekly basis for a few months, helping assist from scratch the requirements each start up requires.
Please only bid on this project if you have actual experience in setting this up from the ground upwards to the stage of it being a running business. I need to be absolutely sure of this and may request a reference from labs that you worked in setting up.
There will be many different stages of consulting required and you will be expected to free up to 10 hours per week for this.
To ensure you have the adequate knowledge, I am asking these starter questions to deter people from bidding who do not meet the skill set or knowledge base that this project requires.
Therefore I would like you to answer the questions below, where i ask if I was looking to set up a laboratory to run blood tests
1: Can i obtain references from previous laboratories that you have set up in the last 10 years?
2: Can you tell me which would be the best kind of tests to run in a medical laboratory (cholesterol, glucose, iron, vitamin, hiv, hepatitis etc) and the reasons why?
3: In your opinion is it better to set up a medical lab or one that also runs as something else i.e an ivf center?
4: Do you have a business plan in setting up a lab from previous projects. What materials have been used in previous projects (machines and consumables) and what space size was this?
5: Do you have good relations with suppliers? Can you recommend any?
I plan to interview the successful candidates and then decide who is awarded the project.
