Abbott opens Singapore research lab

BY Alaric DeArment

SINGAPORE A United States drug and device manufacturer announced Tuesday that it opened a laboratory in Singapore.

Abbott said the pharmaceutical analytical research laboratory opened in the Southeast Asian city-state’s Biopolis research park. The Abbott Park, Ill.-based company said the lab was its first in Southeast Asia and would conduct stability studies, including studies on active drug ingredients and novel formulations, to support regulatory requirements around the world. 

“Abbott has continually increased its investment in R&D over the last decade, resulting in a promising pipeline,” Abbott SVP for pharmaceuticals research and development John Leonard said in a statement. “To realize the potential from the growth in Abbott?s early-stage pipeline requires the resources of a truly global R&D organization, and the scientific talent available in Singapore made it a logical choice for Abbott?s expansion in the region.”

The company said the work done at the lab will allow it to develop investigational medicines and deliver new treatments to patients faster in areas such as neuroscience and cancer.

Winn-Dixie implements savings program

BY Michael Johnsen

Jacksonville, Fla. Winn-Dixie Stores on Wednesday announced the roll out of a savings program to help customers stretch their grocery dollars simply by using their Winn-Dixie Customer Reward Card.

Shoppers can enjoy savings throughout the store in five different ways. The program offers “Buy One Get One Free” deals, “10 for $10” items, quarterly “Good ‘Til” sales, Winn-Dixie brand products, which feature everyday savings, and new monthly “Locked-In Low Price” specials.

Winn-Dixie rolled out the new program last week using in-store signage, its circular advertisements and both TV and Radio campaigns. Each component focuses on the five ways to save, and encourages customers to shop their neighborhood Winn-Dixie.

“In these difficult economic times, our customers are looking for new ways to save at their neighborhood Winn-Dixie,” stated Dan Portnoy, Winn-Dixie’s chief merchandising and marketing officer. “The ‘I Saved’ program is one way we can offer our customers a fresh and local shopping experience with the value they deserve.”

Winn-Dixie customers save every time they use their Winn-Dixie Customer Reward Card on thousands of specially marked items throughout the store. Manufacturers’ coupons also apply, which allows shoppers to save even more.
