SciGene Moves to Larger Manufacturing and Research Space

Facility will enhance company’s ability to provide microarray lab equipment.

SciGene signed a long-term lease on a new manufacturing facility that nearly doubles the size of its current headquarters. “Our new facility provides much needed room for increased design, assembly, and quality control of our products,” notes Terry Gill, director of product manufacturing.

The new facility will increase assembly area to build its lines of microarray lab equipment, including the BriteSpot™ microarray workstation, Little Dipper™ microarray processor, and the Hybex® microarray incubation system. The larger building will also be used to expand R&D activities on new products.

The total size of SciGene’s new building is approximately 7,000 sq. ft., including more than 3,000 sq. ft. of assembly and warehouse space. The company will remain in Sunnyvale, CA.
