Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc plans to expand Clinical Research Laboratory. The new laboratory will be located in Kentucky.
The construction of the lab will be completed in stages by increasing the current 71,600-square-foot operation capacity to 114,000 square feet.
Some of the features include offering wide range of other services, such as clinical sample management, processing and storage, kit design and preparation for collection of clinical samples, and sample testing services.
The new lab is being opened to further support customer clinical sample testing needs. In addition, the facility aims to support new therapeutics, including vaccines and cell and gene therapy products by increasing the testing capacity.
The construction of the new research lab is expected to create 200 new jobs in the coming years. The new research laboratory will be fully operational by the end of 2024.
