Quanterix Corporation, a company digitizing biomarker analysis with the goal of advancing the science of precision health, announced the relocation of its headquarters to a new state-of-the-art facility in Billerica.
Brought on by Quanterix’ growth, the move will allow the company to unite its CLIA-certified laboratory with its expanding workforce to accelerate entry into pharmaceutical drug services and further increase its impact on the transformation of precision healthcare.
“We experienced considerable success in our former facilities, launching several new biomarker technologies that are beginning to disrupt drug development and drug approval methodologies, acquiring Aushon to accelerate our entry into Biopharma services and leading a successful public offering in December 2017,” said Kevin Hrusovsky, chairman and CEO, Quanterix. “These advancements, coupled with the rapid adoption of ultrasensitive protein biomarkers as critical tools for drug development, next generation diagnostics discovery and early disease detection health screens, have fueled our growth and heightened our enthusiasm for the future. As we expand, we’re happy to keep our headquarters in the greater Boston area, a center for medical innovation and a compelling location for Quanterix to lead its global quest to revolutionize healthcare utilizing digital biomarker innovations.”
The two-story, 92,000-square-foot space features new offices and expanded manufacturing and laboratory space. By bringing all business operations together under the same roof as its CLIA-certified lab and Accelerator Lab providing services to BioPharma, Quanterix is able to offer customers a single home for all of its biomarker research needs across a wide range of therapeutic categories. Additionally, the space allows Quanterix to continue growing and innovating its technology bench and industry-leading ultrasensitive assay menu, as the pharmaceutical industry and medical community continue to put an emphasis on the importance of biomarker testing.
“Massachusetts remains a global hub for innovation and research, and our administration has prioritized efforts to create an environment that supports this important sector of our economy,” said Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker. “Quanterix’ expansion is a great addition to the Commonwealth’s digital health ecosystem and we look forward to the opening of this new facility.”
Located at 900 Middlesex Turnpike in Billerica, the new headquarters will help the company continue to fuel its growth and offers employees a world-class workplace designed to support collaboration, innovation and inspiration. The move brings together employees from both its former Lexington and Billerica sites into a single facility, and the additional space will enable Quanterix to continue to grow its headcount, which increased by more than 40% in 2018 alone.
“The new space gives us the room and amenities to inspire our incredible team as they work to advance innovation and disrupt medicine. We’re excited to remain in Boston and have this “state of the art” workplace that we can call home, one that emulates our unique company culture and compelling mission of personalized precision health,” siad Hrusovsky.
