New 280,000-square-foot Kornberg Center accelerates scientific exploration and engages sustainability best practices
Promega Corporation has announced the opening of Kornberg Center, the biotech company’s newly constructed research and development facility on its Fitchburg, WI campus in the US.
The three-story, 280,000-square-foot building, named for Nobel Prize-winning biochemist Arthur Kornberg, will support core product and technology development in life science research, cellular and molecular biology, genetic identity, clinical diagnostic and scientific applications and training.
Kornberg Center incorporates energizing architectural design that bridges office and meeting spaces with advanced laboratories to foster flexibility in exploration and collaboration. The facility also integrates sustainable best practices learned from around the world that reduce energy use by 65% relative to comparable facilities.
Kornberg R&D labs are designed to invent technologies to address the modern challenges of molecular biology and biochemistry. Here, scientists have ready access to lab tools and equipment that remove barriers to their work and accelerate discovery. These labs are individually equipped anticipating the kind of work required for the future of science.
