US life science company Azenta has opened a new genomics laboratory in the UK city of Oxford.

The new facility brings Azenta closer to the UK market and to researchers based there. It will provide next-generation sequencing platforms.

The genomics laboratory is said to have been created with customer convenience in mind. It offers a network of collection points for Azenta’s Genewiz genomics services brand, streamlining the sample submission process for researchers.

The lab also provides a suite of NGS services, including library preparation, sequencing and bioinformatics analysis with UK-based data storage. A range of DNA/RNA extraction services will also be added.

Dr Ginger Zhou, president of Azenta’s multiomics business unit, said: “We’re thrilled to open our Oxford laboratory, which allows us to bring state-of-the-art NGS technology to UK researchers. This new facility not only strengthens our global footprint but also offers researchers access to local experts and cutting-edge resources. The Oxford team comprises some of the best minds in the field, all with deep roots in the local scientific community.”

Dr David Buck, director of lab services at Oxford added: “This new lab represents our commitment to supporting UK researchers by delivering high-quality data faster, advancing research and development in critical fields such as diabetes, infectious diseases, Alzheimer’s and more. We’re excited about the energy, engagement, and collaboration with the scientific community, and we look forward to contributing to their success.”
