Digital pathologist specialist expands at science park

A digital pathology diagnostics leader has moved to a new a larger facility within Exeter Science Park.

The move is a direct response to the increasing demand for Diagnexia’s advanced services, emphasising the company’s commitment to staying at the forefront of healthcare diagnostics innovation and efficiency.

The newly acquired space is designed to accommodate up to 16 advanced digital pathology scanners, signifying Diagnexia’s readiness for both immediate and future expansion.

Central to the new facility’s design is its streamlined workflow, facilitated by dedicated spaces for each stage of the diagnostic process.

The setup significantly enhances operational efficiency, directly contributing to faster, more accurate pathology service delivery.

The premises are organised into areas for clinical and non-clinical workflows, allowing for smoother operation of both core and supportive business functions.

This separation optimises the company’s structural flow, ensuring that Diagnexia continues to lead in delivering rapid, high-quality diagnostic results.

Dr Donal O’Shea, chief executive of Diagnexia, said: “Our move marks a significant step in our journey towards transforming digital pathology. With this larger space, we’re not just expanding our physical footprint but also our capacity to innovate and efficiently meet the growing demands of our clients.”

Dr Sally Basker, chief executive of Exeter Science Park, said: “It’s exciting to see Diagnexia thriving within the infrastructure and support systems provided at Exeter Science Park.

“We have developed high quality labs and associated space for businesses focused on health and life sciences and we have ensured there is a pathway for growth which has been utilised by Diagnexia as they have more than quadrupled their space in three successive moves over 14 months.

“The impact of Diagnexia’s growth goes beyond just their individual success. They contribute to the broader economic growth of the region by creating high-value jobs and driving productivity. This not only benefits the company and its employees but also has ripple effects throughout the community, fostering innovation and attracting further investment.”

This expansion into the larger premises at Exeter Science Park is more than a growth milestone for Diagnexia; it represents the company’s enduring dedication to enhancing NHS healthcare through leading-edge digital histopathology services.
