HalioDx Announces $1 Million Investment in New Lab Facility
March 1, 2019

HalioDx, an international immuno-oncology company pioneering the immunological diagnosis of cancers, has announced the investment of over $1 million to expand its North American operations with the inception of HalioDx Inc., a CLIA-certified laboratory facility to be located in the VA Bio+Tech Park in the City of Richmond.

Based in Paris, France, HalioDx is a global leader in immuno-oncology diagnostics that develops, manufactures, and delivers in vitro diagnostic products and services. The company uses diagnostic applications such as Immunoscore®, which is a proprietary immunohistochemistry assay powered by image analysis that enables better management of localized colon cancer.

“We are very excited to start our activity with our brand new CLIA laboratory based in Richmond,” said CEO of HalioDx Inc. Stéphane Debono. “Our location in Virginia will allow us to closely interact with all laboratories and hospitals in the region while benefitting from a quite competitive offering from the local authorities, including the Virginia Bio cluster. We are now in full capacity to propose our high clinical value test Immunoscore®, and this has been possible thanks to the support of the Commonwealth and City of Richmond.”

According to a statement released by Governor Ralph S. Northam’s office, “HalioDx is an international company that is making groundbreaking advances in biosciences, and choosing Virginia as its gateway into the U.S. market is a testament to our world-class amenities, strategic location, and innovative spirit,” said Governor Northam. “My administration is laser focused on strengthening Virginia’s bioscience economy, and I am confident that Richmond offers the ideal launch pad for HalioDx’s future growth in the Commonwealth.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with the City of Richmond, the Greater Richmond Partnership, and the VA Bio+Tech Park to secure the project for Virginia. VEDP will support HalioDx’s job creation through the state-funded Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP), which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs or experiencing technological change.
