Exact Sciences is a molecular diagnostics company with current products that focus on the early detection and prevention of colorectal cancer. Findorff, one of Madison’s oldest construction firms, wrapped up work this summer on Exact Science’s clinical laboratory space on the city’s southwest side. Work continues on other Exact Sciences buildings.
“With 2,300 employees today and openings for many more, Exact Sciences continues to grow through projects such as its 169,000-square-foot clinical laboratory and warehouse space,” said Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council. “The lab will process samples from people who use the company’s Cologuard screening kit for colorectal cancer, which kills about 50,000 people a year – mostly in cases where the disease was not detected early enough.”
The Wisconsin Technology Council is the independent, non-profit science and technology adviser to the governor and Legislature, with events, publications and outreach that contribute to Wisconsin’s tech-based economy. To join, go to www.wisconsintechnologycouncil.com or call 608-442-7557.
