Vietnamese private labs coming into their own
Equipped with all kind of machines – grinder, blender, dryer, packaging machine, as well as fermenting pots and scaffolds, Chinh said the private laboratory helps facilitate her research process.
Alongside the Government’s million-dollar support to public laboratories at institutions and universities over the last decade, private and foreign enterprises have also been working to develop their own research establishments.
These private laboratories have come to play an important role in scientists’ research and development process and serve practical production purposes. A number of established scientists have claimed that they would not have achieved certain successes if it had not been for state-of-the-art research equipment and facilities provided by these laboratories.
