The newspaper started as a 12-page monthly in February 2011 with a circulation of 2,000 copies and has grown into a 20-page publication with 6,000 copies circulated to key stakeholders in the fields of science/biotechnology ranging from universities to research universities, government agencies, ministries, economic corridors, state offices, biotechnology companies and cabinet members in Malaysia. With a strong belief that science should reach the public, we circulate The Petri Dish to shopping malls, private hospitals, Starbucks outlets, and secondary schools.

The Petri Dish is MABIC’s tool to create public understanding of science/biotechnology, empower decisions makers with knowledge in science/biotechnology, encourage the younger generation to pursue STEM education and careers and create a science culture among the general public.
