Lentigen Corporation Announces Relocation to New Facility
Date:9/9/2008

GAITHERSBURG, Md., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Lentigen Corporation announced today that it has relocated its corporate headquarters, research labs and manufacturing from the University of Maryland Baltimore County TechCenter, to 910 Clopper Road, Suite 200 South Building, Gaithersburg, MD 20878 (Tel: 301.527.4200).

Located along Maryland's I-270 technology corridor, the almost 26,000 square-foot facility will accommodate Lentigen's future growth needs as the leading developer and manufacturer of lentiviral vectors (LVs) and proteins for a wide range of clinical and research applications. Two self-contained suites measuring 4,900 square feet will allow the simultaneous production of both LVs and proteins in compliance with FDA-regulated current good manufacturing practices (cGMP).

"We appreciated the opportunity afforded to grow our company at the TechCenter, but the move to our new facility is a significant step forward in our evolution as a biotech company," stated Tim Ravenscroft, Lentigen's CEO. "The new facility provides an opportunity to expand our research programs. More importantly, the addition of the cGMP manufacturing suites will allow us to manage our programs from the labs through manufacturing to the clinic. We plan to manufacture lentiviral products for clinical trials during 2009 and we will have capacity to handle manufacturing projects for collaborators as the market for lentiviral products expands."
