Solaris, the release said, will be in the entire third floor of Building G.

“With modern R&D infrastructure that is second to none, and a location at the center of the Boston-to-D.C. corridor, the New Jersey Center of Excellence has proven to be the perfect fit for our company since we initially moved into the campus in 2015,” Lakshmi Raghavan, founder and president of Solaris, said in the release. “Our products have a relatively high barrier to entry due to manufacturing complexities and high-end clinical patient study demands, and our expanded space at NJCOE will enable us to create efficiencies that will help us thrive.”
