The US biotech company expands its global reach and scientific impact with Amsterdam location
Seattle-based NanoString Technologies, Inc. has announced the opening of its new headquarters for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Customer Experience (CX) laboratory in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The new space will house the life sciences & health company’s latest technology and serve as a training location for its new research tools.
“Expanding our global footprint and scientific reach aligns with our vision of mapping the universe of biology,” said Brad Gray, president and CEO of NanoString. “We are excited to open a new location, in the heart of Europe, with the most innovative technology and enhanced local support.”
NanoString harnesses the Dutch life sciences & health sector to fuel biological research
As a provider of life science tools for discovery and translational research, NanoString’s platforms allow researchers to make discoveries and move them quickly into results that can benefit human health. To this end, Amsterdam offers fertile ground for NanoString to connect and strengthen its knowledge and skills in creating innovative biotechnology solutions and key enabling technologies. The company joins a collaborative life sciences & health ecosystem in the Netherlands that excels in fostering research & development.
In addition, the Netherlands’ connectivity to global markets and skilled talent will support NanoString’s continued growth in Europe and beyond. Drawing upon these resources, the company’s new EMEA headquarters will feature marketing, human resources, a customer experience team, technical support, a commercial team, engineering and leadership onsite.
Customer Experience Lab kickstarts innovation in multiple languages
The CX Lab will be equipped with NanoString’s latest technologies and be used to train European-based users on new assays and technologies in multiple languages. These efforts are well-matched in the Netherlands, which has a multilingual talent force that ranks No. 1 worldwide for non-native English fluency. In addition, the lab will enable NanoString to support users in the spatial biology discovery revolution.2 May 2022
