AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Agendia BV has announced the official opening of the company's new headquarters yesterday at Amsterdam's Science Park at Watergraafsmeer, Kruislaan 406. The Grand Opening ceremony was officiated by Dr. Rene Bernards, Chief Scientific Officer at Agendia and the Honourable Director General Mrs. R.M. Bergkamp, on behalf of the Honourable Mrs. Maria van der Hoeven, Minster of Economic Affairs for The Netherlands.

"Agendia has a distinguished history of providing exceptional high quality diagnostic testing services that provide valuable information for cancer patients and the physicians who treat them," said Dr. Bernhard Sixt, Agendia's president & chief executive officer (CEO). "The expanded capacity of our laboratories at our new location will allow us to meet the growing worldwide demand for our clinical services as we expand into major markets, enhancing the company's ability to serve the healthcare community."

The new facilities offer 13,000 square feet of laboratory and office space that will support the company's molecular diagnostic cancer testing services and research activities.

"Additionally, this move proves our ability to replicate our FDA-cleared and CLIA-certified laboratory in a new location in just 4 months," said Dr. Jan Groen, vice president and chief operating officer (COO) at Agendia.
