Liquid Biotech will lease lab space for its biological and chemical research, along with spots in the 110-seat co-working area. A spinout from Penn’s research-commercialization organization, it has developed technology to identify and isolate certain cells often found in the blood of cancer patients.

“We’ve been looking for space for a while,” said Dr. Philip M. Sass, CEO of Liquid Biotech, adding that the Pennovation Center offers access to additional services like its tissue culture facility and molecular biology equipment.
