You’ve leveraged the potential of your cutting-edge science to secure financing, but now the pressure is on to rapidly generate the data you will need to succeed while using your cash reserves as efficiently as possible. Until now, companies in this position had limited choices — lease a space that is probably more than you need and buy the expensive equipment that you require — fast but expensive; build out a space but that takes valuable time and doesn’t save much of your limited funds; using a CRO to do the work for you leaves you little to show to your stakeholders regarding a real company with a growing team gaining valuable internal intellectual property and “know how”. Today, however, there’s a new way to move quickly and cost-effectively to build your team and generate the data and knowledge yourselves to get you to the next level.

K2bio was created to support these kinds of companies, that need flexible and strategic support to access the big company resources they need to grow while living within a small company budget. Companies just like yours. K2bio provides a first-class work environment, state-of-the-art equipment, ultra-modern laboratory, vivarium and manufacturing facilities, and a full suite of scientific and operational services. We offer these services through a novel plug-and-play menu of options that provide a shared but secure research laboratory environment in which access to our expensive equipment and resources is made affordable by sharing them on site across multiple companies.

The K2bio Difference

K2bio offers a comprehensive R&D solution to biotech and life science companies in the Houston and surrounding areas. While traditional biotechnology incubators and office parks provide laboratory space, K2bio provides fully functional laboratories, stocked with common reagents and equipment; access to high-end technologies, including IVIS imaging, flow cytometry, mass spectrometry, and high-performance liquid chromatography.

Our onsite mouse vivarium, unique to Houston, offers early-stage companies the ability to execute and control their own rodent studies, or contract directly with our experienced staff. By reducing barriers and costs typically associated with cutting-edge biopharmaceutical research, we help our clients turn today’s exciting scientific discovery into tomorrow’s therapies. Our knowledgeable staff and services can help design and execute a broad array of laboratory and animal studies. Contracting opportunities for our vivarium and experienced staff are also available for companies outside of those utilizing our incubator space within our facility.

Our team also manages facility operations and maintenance, security, purchasing, and receiving. This allows our tenants to be highly productive and efficient from day one in our facility and as they navigate the drug development continuum. Additionally, our network of investors, service providers, scientists, and more serve as a growth catalyst for companies in any stage of development.
