The recently completed Phase II expansion opened the opportunities for established companies to be located at our facility, share the expertise and resources, and accelerate the development of Mansfield Bio-Incubator-anchored nascent life science cluster. For example, Phenomenex, a Danaher company, has established its East Coast Laboratory in one of the private suites. The laboratory houses top-of-the-line analytical instruments worth several million dollars. These include mass spectrometers (MS), high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and other related instruments. Phenomenex provides critical support to the member companies allowing access to the expensive instrumentation required training and has already established working relations with several of our member companies and faculty at Wheaton College.

Currently, Mansfield Bio-Incubator hosts close to 30 startups working on diverse, groundbreaking projects. These include targeting triple-negative breast cancer, animal health, women's health, fertility diagnostics, cholera infections, and others. More information can be found below.
