Fullstopp acquires Sample of Science

Share this on social media:

Fullstopp, the Berlin-based company recently founded by Sven Fund, has acquired Sample of Science from Horiba Jobin Yvon.

Sample of Science provides a scholarly publication platform around scientific samples in physics, chemistry and the material sciences. It was launched by Olivier Acher, the director of innovation at the international instrumentation company, in 2012.

Sample of Science allows researchers to publish and share the samples they created and hence allows them to add their work to their curriculum. Secondly, readers of the sample descriptions can request and adopt these samples to continue their own research without loss of time.

'Researchers are striving to accelerate research, and Sample of Science as a publication and sharing platform is helping them to do so,' said Sven Fund, founder and managing director of Fullstopp. 'After its impressive launch, I am pleased to help Sample of Science to grow further.'

Olivier Acher of Horibia added: 'Initial operations confirmed the interest of many scientists for sharing samples, and also evidenced their motivation in having this interweaved with their academic publication activities. Given their knowledge of and network within both research and in academic publishing, I am convinced Fullstopp has the ability to grow Sample of Science in a meaningful size within a short period of time.'
