Rapid Pathogen Screening expanding Sarasota footprint

January 23, 2013 

SARASOTA - Rapid Pathogen Screening is expanding its footprint in Sarasota with the addition of a new building adjacent to its current headquarters that will double the company’s space.

“International demand for POC diagnostics combined with the supportive local business climate, highly-skilled workforce, and professional associations unique to Sarasota County creates an ideal situation to further pursue our commitment to impact global healthcare by expanding our family of rapid, easy to use tests,” said Robert Sambursky, RPS’s chief executive officer and president.

The company, which is located at 7227 Delainey Court, develops and manufactures rapid point-of-care diagnostic tests for infectious diseases and inflammatory conditions.

The company recently signed a contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Chemical and Biological Defense Division to develop and manufacture a diagnostic test to detect the body’s immune response to viral and bacterial infections.
