JLABS @ LabCentral
JLABS, part of Johnson & Johnson Innovation, LLC, is a network of life science incubators providing emerging companies many of the advantages of being in a big company, without the capital investment. JLABS offers singular bench tops, modular wet lab units and office space on a short-term basis, allowing companies to pay only for the space they need, with an option to quickly expand when they have the resources to do so. Companies residing at JLABS also have access to core research labs hosting specialized capital equipment and shared administrative areas.
JLABS is an open innovation model, and the agreement for space does not grant JLABS or Johnson & Johnson Innovation, Inc. any stake or rights in the companies, nor will the companies have a guaranteed future affiliation with JLABS. The flagship facility is located in San Diego at Janssen's West Coast Research Center, and Johnson & Johnson Innovation JLABS has now two established locations in San Francisco, one through a collaboration with the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3) and a second standalone facility, and in Boston, through a collaboration with Lab Central.
