Caris Life Sciences™, a leading biosciences company focused on driving
precise and personalized healthcare, has moved to a new corporate headquarters
in order to meet growing demand for its anatomical pathology and molecular
profiling services. The new Dallas-area location is three times larger
than its previous facility. Located in the high-tech business corridor
of Irving, the 172,000-square-foot corporate headquarters features a state-of-the-art
molecular diagnostic and anatomic pathology laboratory, housed entirely
behind a wall of glass.
Caris has also tripled its square footage in Phoenix by adding a new facility,
located in the burgeoning Cotton Center development. The new cutting-edge
molecular laboratory space is dedicated to research, the development of
new tests for cancer and sophisticated assays for pharmaceutical manufacturers.
Plans for expansion of Caris’ Boston facilities are also underway.
In addition to meeting the growing demand for the Company’s services,
the expansion also will play a pivotal role in Caris’ continued
development and validation of the Carisome™ Technology, a proprietary
blood-based technology designed to rapidly and accurately detect, as well
as monitor, cancer and other complex diseases. The first in a series of
testing services based on this technology will be launched later this
year to aid in the management of prostate cancer.
“The need for more precise, personalized healthcare provided by our
innovative diagnostic, prognostic and theranostic technologies is undeniable.
The strong demand for our services has necessitated a three-fold increase
in facility space,” said David D. Halbert, Chairman and CEO. “The
expansion of our facilities in Dallas, Phoenix and Boston will increase
our facility space to more than 320,000 square feet, including over 80,000
square feet of laboratory space, allowing us to serve the needs of our
clients and their patients today, and to expand our research and development
efforts for our new, proprietary Carisome™ Technology.”
