By aggregating the purchasing power of the 1,400+ member companies within MassBio, MassBio Edge allows members to have a strong presence in the marketplace and benefit from competitive discounts and premier customer service, which saves members more than $200 million each year.
Founded in 1997, Leyton has leveraged its 24 years of experience to bring its life sciences clientele underutilized tax credits available to the industry.
