The Premier Laboratory Facility for
Next-Generation Powerhouse Biotech Startups

LabCentral 610 is a 33,000-square-foot facility located across a shared driveway from LabCentral on the third floor of Pfizer’s Kendall Square Worldwide Research and Development building. LabCentral 610 houses up to six early- to mid-stage companies with room to accommodate ~175 scientists and entrepreneurs.  Eligible startups include those with high-impact science, excellent execution, and significant prospects for achieving scientific and business success whose space needs and funding exceed the offerings and financing cap at our 700 Main Street location. The companies may be ‘graduates’ from LabCentral, or new companies interested in securing space in the thriving bioscience Kendall Square neighborhood. LabCentral developed its 610 space in response to requests from resident startups outgrowing or “aging out” of LabCentral who want to remain within its supportive environment as they continue on in their next stage of development. LabCentral 610 is generously supported by Pfizer.
