NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – UK-based firm Enigma Diagnostics has opened a US office in San Francisco, the company said today.
The office, which opened yesterday, is Enigma’s first facility outside the UK. The new office was established to commercialize the company’s rapid diagnostic instrument systems.
Enigma launched its first product, the Enigma Field Laboratory, in November. The FL is “a fully automated, real-time PCR detection system geared for use by veterinarians, first responders, and military personnel."
The company said that it has tapped Chris Melancon, a former Applied Biosystems executive, to head the new office.
