Discovery Life Sciences Announces Major Strategic Expansions: New State-of-the-Art Facilities, Advanced Technologies, and Global Brand Enhancements

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Oct. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Discovery Life Sciences (Discovery), the Biospecimen and Biomarker Specialists, has moved to its new global headquarters at the HudsonAlpha Institute of Biotechnology campus in Huntsville, Alabama. Alongside this relocation, the company’s AllCells cell and gene therapy brand has set up its new facility in Alameda, California. In addition, Discovery is introducing Olink Explore HT proteomic services and debuting an all-new digital platform.

With support from the State of Alabama and HudsonAlpha, Discovery has opened its new 93,000-square-foot global headquarters building in Huntsville. This distinctive facility combines Discovery’s biospecimen products and multi-omic biomarker and analytics services under one roof. Discovery provides access to one of the world’s largest biospecimen inventories alongside leading genomic, proteomic, molecular pathology, flow cytometry, and cell biology technologies at a scale to serve R&D programs―from target assay validation to the largest global clinical trials, requiring either single or sequential technology assessments. The sample’s chain of custody remains within this single facility, ensuring top-tier quality and rigorous regulatory compliance.

The AllCells brand of Discovery has also moved into its new facility at 1640 South Loop Rd Suite 250, Alameda, CA 94502. The new AllCells facility features:

  • A 20% increase in collection capacity for quicker, more efficient order fulfillment.
  • Cell manufacturing and processing cleanrooms that meet EU standards.
  • An improved donor experience with easy accessibility, abundant parking, and a contemporary and inviting atmosphere.


Discovery’s Proteome Center has integrated the Olink Explore HT platform into its services. Explore HT has the capacity to measure over 5,300 proteins while increasing processing throughput capacity to thousands of samples weekly and delivering data four times faster than prior generations. This technology significantly complements the Proteome Center’s existing capabilities, such as Olink Explore, Target, Focus, Flex, mass spectrometry, and Luminex-based services.

Given its rapid growth and increasing client interest in its diverse offerings, Discovery launched a new company website designed to amplify the digital client experience. The new features a modernized design and an intuitive user interface to provide a more informative and streamlined digital experience that more accurately reflects the company’s mission and highlights the enhanced branded capabilities of its AllCells and Gentest brands.

“Following our acquisition of 13 companies over the last five years, we believe these enhancements mark a significant milestone in our company’s journey,” said Discovery CEO Glenn Bilawsky. “We are reshaping the life sciences laboratory services sector. With these enhancements, we are even better equipped to advance science and accelerate our clients’ research and development of new diagnostics and therapies to improve patient care.”
