Dallas’ status as a biotech and healthcare innovation hub got a boost with the opening of BioLabs at Pegasus Park on March 22.
The space boasts lab space and equipment, work stations, conference rooms, and more.
It’s not the first site opened by BioLabs. They have sites in Boston, San Diego, New York, and other major cities. Dallas is also the first city not on the coast that BioLabs has set up shop in.
“Biomedical companies are expensive to start and BioLabs helps lower that cost for more people to get involved,” said the site director, Gabby Everett.
Everett led media members on a tour of the BioLabs facility before the ribbon-cutting festivities began.
A company can simply rent bench space or can rent private labs. Biolabs provides equipment, but companies renting space there can bring their own equipment as well. Some of the equipment available include cold storage, 3D printers for the creation of medical devices, incubators, pH meters, scales, power supplies, and more.
When the tour ended, the grand opening presentation began. Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson, U.S. Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, and State Sen. Royce West were just a few of the people in attendance.
