US Genomics Moves Into New Expanded Facility

NEW YORK, Sept. 28 (GenomeWeb News) - US Genomics, a Woburn, Mass.-based biotech company, has expanded its operations into a new 34,000-square-foot, custom-built facility in Woburn.

 

The company said that the move was partially to accomodate to the launch of its first commercial product, the Trilogy platform, for detecting minute quantities of DNA, RNA, and proteins without amplification.

 

The move also coincides with the commencement of a $7.5 million grant recently awarded to the company by the US Department of Homeland Security to develop a pathogen sensor based on its direct linear DNA-mapping technology.
