HAMILTON, ONT.—McMaster Innovation Park in Hamilton has announced that Hemostasis Reference Laboratory (HRL) has signed to become its newest tenant, as of next December.
HRL, formerly housed at Hamilton’s Juravinski Hospital, will move to the park’s 44 Frid St. site, stated a recent release. The property, formerly the home of the Hamilton Spectator, is being renovated into 280,000 square feet of life sciences lab space, part of the park’s continuing expansion which includes 1.3 million square feet of labs and biomanufacturing space.
HRL provides non-diagnostic laboratory services, specializing in coagulation testing and custom assays. HRL’s range of clients includes diagnostic and reagent manufacturers requiring validation support, to pharmaceutical and academic researchers.
HRL general manager Jeff Spence commented in a statement, “After searching for our new home, we were really impressed with the layout and design of MIP’s lab space. It was an easy decision to relocate to the park. We are surrounded by a business community of leaders and have the resources we need to continue serving our clients, expand our services and thrive as a business.”
