JLABS features state-of-the-art laboratory instrumentation and equipment.

(This list is generic and not specific to each site.)

State-of-the-art equipment

We operate a capital efficient model – when a resident company moves in they can get up and running right away without investment in large equipment or taking the time to set up the normal applications you would need as you set up as a new company.

We have a full team on hand to support all companies in terms of their office & lab space – we want each startup company to receive the same access & support that an internal JNJ R&D employee will have.

We also provide training on equipment like 3D printers, UPLCs, FPLCs FACs, etc. Trainings that can cost more than $2000 when provided outside of JLABS.
