Oxford Nanopore Technologies, Ltd announces the expansion of its Oxford headquarters and the opening of a new Oxford Nanopore informatics outstation in Cambridge, UK.
These new premises will support further corporate development of Oxford Nanopore following its recent £25 million fundraising. New space at Florey House, Oxford Science Park, adds to existing laboratories and offices at Edmund Cartwright House, expanding the Company's headquarters from 10,000 square feet to 17,000 square feet. The new Oxford Nanopore informatics facility at Chesterford Research Park, Cambridge, will provide an additional base for the Company's growing team of informaticians.
"Oxford Nanopore is growing rapidly. We are expanding existing groups and adding new functions, and these new premises give us long term growth capacity," said Gordon Sanghera, CEO. "The new Oxford facility allows us to expand R&D, production and quality functions at our headquarters. Meanwhile, the Cambridge location helps us to attract the best informaticians. Because the European informatics community has such strong links to Cambridge, we believe it will be critical to have a facility there to support our current and future informatics staff."
