California COVID-19 lab to double volume with new facility

Menlo Park, Calif.-based diagnostic company SummerBio is opening a new lab in Menlo Park to expand its COVID-19 testing capabilities.

The 28,589-square-foot facility will double the company's testing volume and process 240,000 PCR tests per day, SummerBio said Feb. 21. The new lab will also be able to operate at warm capacity — meaning it can quickly adapt to variation in test volumes — when fully operational in April 2022.

It will house eight PCR automation cells and consolidate the company's Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments lab, engineering and robotics, and research and development under one roof.
