Great idea. I would add one suggestion here. Since we are dealing not only with the reagents and chemicals but with equipment as well, we have to first make sure that the equipment listed for sharing/selling in the platform are properly functioning. We know that a machine as simple as a micropipette is useless when it loses its optimum calibration. The platform shall hence not just be a marketplace for buying or selling second-hand laboratory equipment, but also has to guarantee that everything that is listed is properly functioning, meets all the standard mensuration requirements and can be directly used in a new laboratory without any extensive modification. If any modification/recalibration/repair is needed, the platform will have to take care of that. I would suggest recruiting a special technical team that checks all the listed equipment before including in the marketplace, and making necessary repairing if any is needed.
