Clinical Data Consolidating Cogenics in NC, Texas; No Layoffs Expected

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Clinical Data is in the process of separating the operations of its PGx Health and its Cogenics businesses by consolidating Cogenics’ US operations in Morrisville, NC, and in Houston, Tex., Cogenics Senior Director of Marketing Stephen Sharp told GenomeWeb Daily News today.
 
By the end of the year, Sharp said, Cogenics, which provides genomic services, will have removed its operations from New Haven, Conn., allowing the PGx Health business to use that facility for its diagnostics and therapeutics efforts.
 
Sharp said the company plans to expand its staff in both Morrisville and in Houston, and he does not expect any layoffs associated with the restructuring.
 
He added that the Morrisville facility will focus on genotyping services and the Houston facility will focus on sequencing.
