Located in the nation’s second largest research park – Cummings Research Park (CRP), the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology is the cornerstone of the 150-acre CRP Biotech Campus. HudsonAlpha, a not-for-profit organization, has the three-fold mission of conducting genomics-based research to improve human health and well being, sparking economic development, and providing educational outreach to nurture the next generation of biotech researchers and entrepreneurs. The institute’s vision is of a world-class center that will translate the results of the Human Genome Project into individualized therapies for diseases while providing a bridge between bioscience and entrepreneurship, thereby expanding biotechnology.
The Alimetrix® CLIA certified clinical laboratory is structured in a manner that is best in class for the utilization of molecular diagnostics. Areas are physically separated to ensure sample integrity and prevent reagent contamination. Our state of the art laboratory design allows for more efficient sample processing and testing and improved quality control and turnaround time for our clients. Also, our Research & Product Development area is located in a 2,500 square foot state of the art laboratory. This allows us to continue to develop new assays that are pertinent to quality patient care. We strive to meet the needs of the physician using new molecular diagnostics and to work with hospitals on further studies to develop tools that meet the demanding constraints associated with infectious disease prevention and control as well as patient satisfaction.
