One of world’s largest state-of-the-art laboratories

City and business leaders recently celebrated the opening of Ambry Genetics‘ Super Lab in Aliso Viejo.

The company is a leader in clinical genetic diagnostics and genetics software solutions and its new Super Lab, which opened in February, is one of the largest, most state-of-the-art laboratories featuring some of the most sophisticated equipment of any commercial or academic laboratory in the world.

At 65,000-square-feet, the new Super Lab is more than four times larger than Ambry’s previous operations.  With the new lab, the company has dramatically increased the number of patient samples it currently processes on a daily basis, meaning physicians and genetic counselors have results faster, when every week matters for their patients.

“Ever since I started Ambry, I’ve been driven to make genetics a more empowered, collaborative science to fulfill the promise of the human genome and help people live healthier, better lives,” said Charles Dunlop, the company’s founder and CEO.

Privately held Ambry said it remains committed to growing its operations in the area. Dunlop founded the company in 1999 in a small office above a motorcycle shop with one genetic test for cystic fibrosis.
