“When we began searching for a permanent location for Aperiomics to continue its mission of revolutionizing infectious disease identification, we knew that we needed to be in a community that fosters innovation, believes in leading technologies and enables access to talent, services and infrastructure that a visionary company like ours requires to reach its full potential,” said Dr. Crystal Icenhour, PhD, CEO of Aperiomics. “Our roots are in Loudoun County and nowhere else fit the bill quite as well."

On Thursday, Dec. 12, Loudoun-founded Aperiomics officials opened the doors to its new corporate headquarters and lab space in Sterling. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was well attended by members of the Loudoun business community, including Loudoun Economic Development and the Loudoun Chamber of Commerce.

Loudoun's homegrown biotech business Aperiomics was in the spotlight on Tuesday, as the Virginia Economic Development Partnership hosted a media tour of health companies in Northern Virginia.

Dr. Crystal Icenhour had a chance to speak with reporters from Pharmaceutical Commerce magazine, Biocompare, Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News, and the American Institute of Biological Sciences.

Loudoun Economic Development was on-hand to support Aperiomics and help bring context to the unique data connectivity available in Loudoun County. Aperiomics relies on compute power to help detect the pathogens and microorganisms in bio samples.

We also worked with Mom's Apple Pie to provide locally-sourced pies for the tour, which had traveled from Richmond.
