Roslin catches new tenants

Published: 11 January 2017

In what is expected to be a cold January, we extend a warm welcome to our new tenants who joined Roslin BioCentre towards the end of last year.

The science park has been in operation since 1999 and demonstrates an excellent track record of growth and development for early stage companies – a perfect fit for ARK-Genomics Limited.

ARK-Genomics Limited (AGL) facilitates genomic research between commercial and academic partners, providing access to cutting edge sequencing technologies for human and animal health, together with project management services to support clients at all stages of a project, from grant application to data analysis, dependent on needs.

Whilst able to meet the needs and business demands of the largest occupiers, Roslin BioCentre is also focussed on providing practical property solutions and support to help energetic and vibrant new businesses grow – this includes virtual tenancy.

Landcatch Natural Selection Ltd, an aquaculture breeding company is our new virtual tenant. Landcatch is part of Hendrix Genetics, a global multi-species breeding company, and provides support to Atlantic Salmon, Rainbow Trout and Coho Salmon genetic breeding programmes around the world, focused on improved disease resistance, survival and growth rates.

“Whilst Roslin BioCentre continues to attract companies with expertise in stem cells, genetics, genomics and bioinformatics - our flexibility has interest from emerging sectors such as agricultural technology (agri-tech) and aquaculture.”

“We welcome those new strategic tenant companies to Roslin BioCentre, and we’re ideally placed to provide collaborative opportunities onsite and within the Midlothian Science Zone, including the new Roslin Innovation Centre, on schedule to open at the end of summer 2017.”

John Mackenzie, CEO of Roslin BioCentre and Roslin Innovation Centre
