DNA manufacturer Touchlight expands its campus to Victorian-era waterworks building
The manufacturing spaces for any type of DNA work may bring up images of a large, windowless, warehouse-type building, or a more modern facade donned with glass, but one manufacturer is converting an old Victorian-style building into a new manufacturing site.
Touchlight, a UK-based producer of a proprietary enzymatic DNA product it calls “doggybone DNA,” or dbDNA, which has a schematic structure that’s linear and double-stranded, giving the appearance of a dog bone, has opened the doors to a redeveloped and expanded manufacturing facility that is housed within a former Victorian-era waterworks building on the River Thames in the Borough of Hampton in West London. According to a release, the expanded facility has tripled Touchlight’s manufacturing output and can produce more than 8 kg of DNA product a year.
