The Feynman Center bypasses the mold of a traditional manufacturing facility, assimilating detailed designs and aspects of the outside world to convey a sense of warmth, passion for discovery and a desire to combine present standards with a vision for the future. The state-of-the-art 260,000-square-foot facility is dedicated to serving customers in need of molecular biology reagents for In Vitro diagnostic (IVD) assays.
“We wanted the capabilities of the Feynman Center to not only meet today’s regulations and capacity for flexibility, but also anticipate what’s to come and continue to serve the latest applications of molecular tools,” said Bill Linton, President and CEO of Promega Corporation.
Primarily devoted to meeting Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) standards and manufacturing molecular technology tools, the Feynman Center also features a unique area - the Crossroads, for Promega guests and employees. The Crossroads incorporates spaces for training, lab demonstrations, fitness and dining. It also features “Third Spaces” for employees, to foster creative thinking and collaboration.
The Grand Opening will include tours and scientific activities for guests. The Dedication Ceremony will feature presentations from Jeanette Roberts, Dean of the Pharmacy School at UW-Madison, and a few words from the building designers and Promega leadership.
