StatLab Medical Products, a McKinney-based developer and manufacturer of medical diagnostic supplies, is launching a new manufacturing facility in Arlington after acquiring two UK-based histology consumables and diagnostic equipment companies in 2021 and 2022.
Injection molding operations at the new 35,000-square-foot Arlington facility will give laboratories the confidence of additional U.S.-produced core histology consumables including cassettes, the company said.
The company also said that at the StatLab Wales campus housing CellPath operations, a lease has been signed and build-out of a 33,000-square-foot building is underway to support additional manufacturing capacity and provide expanded space for the CellNass sample archiving service.
“We’ve seen strong demand for CellPath cassettes, including PiSmart Cassettes paired with the PiSmart cassette Printer, which reinforces the success of the synergy of our businesses as we expand sales of the PiSmart Cassette printer to the US and beyond,” Stuart Gander, leader of UK business units, said in a statement. “StatLab distribution of large format cassettes in the U.S. has also contributed to record sales over the past 12 months.”
Future expansion plans in Arlington
With room for expansion, StatLab also will be scaling the CellPath sample archiving business to the U.S. at the new Arlington site, the company said.
The future launch of this archiving service not only will cement StatLab as market leaders in the histology consumables market, but also provide laboratories with a comprehensive off-site solution for sample archiving, allowing them to be stored and retrieved when needed, saving valuable time and storage space.
“During this exciting period of growth, StatLab continues to prioritize access for laboratories to the highest quality products that ensure the most accurate results. This will continue to be our commitment as StatLab expands manufacturing operations and global reach,” Joe Bernardo, executive chairman and interim CEO at StatLab, said in a statement.
StatLab Medical Products was founded in 1976 and is a leader in the development and manufacturing of high-quality histology and cytology diagnostic products and labeling and tracking equipment.
The company partners with anatomic pathology laboratories to provide easy access to over 3,500 high-quality diagnostic products and equipment.
