Bio-Industry Defined
Share |
Michigan's biosciences industry is defined by six sectors:
  • Ag/Food, Industrial & Environmental
  • Bioscience Product Distribution
  • Informatics & Health IT
  • Medical Device & Equipment Manufacturers
  • Pharmaceuticals & Therapeutics
  • R&D, Medical & Testing Laboratories
These categories are based on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). This system is the standard used by Federal and private statistical agencies in classifying businesses for the purpose of collecting, analyzing, and publishing economic data. The table below details the specific NAICS codes used in the definition of Michigan's bio-industry.
Search the Michigan Bioscience Directory for profiles of the state's core bioscience companies and bio-industry relevant suppliers, service providers, contract manufacturers and other companies. In addition, it lists academic and clinical research centers, economic development organizations, incubators and accelerators, and various non-profit organizations in Michigan. The latter groups are not part of the bio-industry from a NAICS point of view. However, they do reflect the strength and diversity of Michigan’s supply chain, universities, health systems, and support services, that help drive the growth of biosciences in Michigan.

What is Bioscience? Core Industry Defined

BioOhio’s Ohio Bioscience Growth Report is based on five industry sectors: Medical Device & Equipment Manufacturers, Pharmaceuticals & Therapeutics, Research & Development, Medical & Testing Laboratories and Agricultural Biotechnology. BioOhio has also identified Medical Product Distribution as an important sector of the bioscience industry.

The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) is the standard used by Federal and private statistical agencies in classifying businesses for the purpose of collecting, analyzing, and publishing economic data. Learn more at the U.S. Census website.

The table below details the specific NAICS codes used in the creation of our reports and our definition of the industry. Click here to download a one-page handout with this information.

BioOhio’s custom built Ohio Bioscience Resource Directory includes profiles of core bioscience companies as well as suppliers, service providers, contract manufacturers and other industry relevant companies. These supply chain companies are not part of the bio industry from a NAICS point of view. However, the depth of Ohio’s supply chain, including machine shops, injection molders, consultants, product development firms, healthcare & life science IT developers, universities, and more, has been a critical element in the growth of bioscience in Ohio.
