HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, the nonprofit organization dedicated to innovating the field of genomic technology and science within health, agriculture, education, and commercialization, has welcomed two new associate companies to the Huntsville, AL campus. They are:
- Polaris Sensor Technologies which is developing a novel method to disinfect and sterilize through a self-dispersing dry mist. The military and commercial use includes medical facilities, equipment and especially complex scopes with integrated optics and electronics. A similar chemical formulation has potential for agricultural use, and the Polaris team hopes to develop methods to envelop plants with organic pesticides.
- Madison Core Laboratories is a North Alabama-based clinical laboratory serving healthcare providers, long-term facilities, homebound patients, addiction clinics and industrial and corporate testing needs. The company is also developing diagnostic tests in the areas of neuroscience, oncology and women’s health.
HudsonAlpha’s campus includes nearly 50 biotech companies and consists of 152 acres nestled within Cummings Research Park, the second largest research park in the nation.
