Clinical Data Consolidates North Carolina Facilities

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Clinical Data has consolidated its genomic labs and its offices in North Carolina, the company said today.
 
Clinical Data acquired the labs and offices as part of its acquisition of Genaissance and Icoria. Icoria staff and operations have been relocated to a Cogenics facility (formerly belonging to Genaissance) in Morrisville, NC.
 
The previous location in Research Triangle Park was leased space and Clinical Data agreed on a financial settlement as part of a separation agreement.
 
According to the company, the move will reduce costs and improve efficiency and throughput of DNA- and RNA-based services.
