Bioscience NAICS Codes

BioOhio’s Ohio Bioscience Growth Report is based on six industry sectors: Medical Device & Equipment Manufacturers, Pharmaceuticals & Therapeutics, Research & Development, Medical & Testing Laboratories, Agricultural Biotechnology and Medical Product Distribution.

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. Please note that the codes listed below are from the 2012 NAICS set, and do not reflect the 2017 revision. 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. For more descriptive information these and related sub-sectors, click here.

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.
