Letter from the President: Why Getting Compared to Larvae is the Best Thing that Happened at SfN
I’m so glad we’re back to seeing each other in person again at SfN. I continue to marvel about how your insights, stories, and feedback directly make our products better at MBF. And, when you hear those stories in person…they provoke bigger ideas.
For example, one of our current customers said to me, “you folks are like pond larvae, you are small…but you’re always there, adapting, changing, and evolving.”
It’s true, I guess. From the very beginning of MBF Bioscience, my father and I were dedicated to illuminating the discoveries in the neuroscience world using a rigorous, methodical approach. It’s what’s led to our award-winning group of products. We take great pride in serving the needs of researchers with real insights, in real life, and in real time.
But, our company…like bioscience…never stands still. Yesterday’s insights led to today’s insights. Today’s insights will lead to greater insights tomorrow. And, like a living organism, we must evolve to get better. Our products like Neurolucida and Stereo Investigator, have evolved and expanded. That’s why three years ago we added Vidrio Technologies into the MBF fold. We recognized that multi-photon imaging would not only improve our business, but it would grow more scientific insights as well.
That evolution of MBF has continued this year with adding Neurophotometrics to the MBF Family, completed just weeks ago. We’re thrilled that Sage Aronson and his team at NPM will be continuing their commitment to emerging researchers, and joining with us to see how we can raise the bar together.
