The Oxford Science Park's newly refurbished Hayakawa Building has welcomed new occupiers CyanoCapture and Ochre Bio.

The new arrivals join MoA Technology and Oxford Nanopore Technologies which are expanding their footprint on the Park, as well as Circassia which is relocating from another building. Both CyanoCapture and Ochre Bio join from the Oxford BioEscalator, meaning that the overwhelming majority of its alumni companies are now located at The Oxford Science Park.

The Hayakawa Building includes a new chemistry laboratory for liver health company Ochre Bio. The building, which has 36,000 sq ft of clean room, laboratory and office space, is part of TOSP's portfolio of Innovation Buildings offering flexible terms for start-up companies.  TOSP took over management and control of the building from Sharp Laboratories of Europe at the end of last year.

“Oxford, through the University hospitals and local industry, is a world leader in cutting-edge liver disease research and we are delighted to be able to expand our presence here with our new facility at The Oxford Science Park,” said Jack O’Meara, CEO & Co-Founder, Ochre Bio. “We’re impressed with the team’s speed and efficiency in establishing a high quality laboratory, to enable Ochre to accelerate the development of RNA therapies for chronic liver diseases, a leading cause of death globally.”

“It’s inspiring to be around people who are passionate about what they’re building. The Oxford Science Park is the perfect environment for that. It’s a real privilege to be here.”, added Dr David Kim, CEO and Co-Founder of CyanoCapture.

Rory Maw, CEO of The Oxford Science Park, said, ‘CyanoCapture and Ochre Bio are highly complementary to the other innovative companies on the Park. We welcome them to the Hayakawa Building, which is also providing valuable space for the expansion of existing occupiers.’
