Leica Biosystems increases presence in North America with opening of U.S. Research and Development laboratory

Leica Biosystems has announced the establishment of its R&D facility in Massachusetts, in operation since August 2012. Citing the state’s global leadership in the life sciences and a growing customer base in the United States, Leica’s presence in Massachusetts will focus on research and development of companion diagnostics. The company’s temporary offices and R&D lab space are in Danvers, Mass., but the Leica Biosystems team has plans to expand by the end of 2013.
