CLC Bio Expands Operations in Response to Increased Data Analysis Demands in the Americas


CLC Bio announced this week that it has opened two new offices in Boston and in the Washington DC area to meet the increasing demand for its data analysis tools from customers in North and South America.

The company's Boston office officially opened on Sept. 1 and will be a home base for its sales, marketing, and support operations. The DC-based offices will be used as a Government Sector branch.

CLC Bio has also hired several new employees this year and plans to employ additional staff for its US team.

In a statement, Saul Kravitz, CLC Bio's director of North American Consulting Services said that the new offices provide "a strong base" to support the company's growing list of customers.

Earlier this month, in a similar effort to expand its footprint in Asia, CLC Bio announced that it was partnering with Japanese informatics company, World Fusion to create a high-throughput sequence analysis service center in Japan. (BI 08/20/2010)

In 2009, CLC Bio posted a 130 percent increase in sales globally and a 200 percent growth rate in isolated Americas sales for the same period.
