SG Blocks, Inc., a Brooklyn-based designer and fabricator of container-based structures, has entered the U.S. test lab market by forming a joint venture with Clarity Diagnostics. The JV will launch CLIA-certified laboratories in modular containers, under the name Clarity Modular Lab Solutions (CMLS), with SG Blocks holding a 51% interest.
CMLS’ first CLIA lab contract, Lab 1, will construct a redundant main lab outside of Boca Raton, FL. It’s scheduled to be completed within 12 months.
SG Blocks CEO Paul Galvin said, “As the nation grapples with COVID-19, the need for continuous testing has emerged, and thus has the need for increasing the number of CLIA-certified labs that can process diagnostic tests at the point of sample collection.”
Although COVID is the primary initial project, the JV was formed by SG Blocks and Clarity to process all types of diagnostic tests in a CLIA-certified lab environment.
