SAN CARLOS, Calif., Oct. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- LakePharma announced today it won nomination into The Fast 100: the fastest growing private companies in the Bay Area. The ranking has been published by San Francisco Business Times for the last 25 years, with the coveted list spanning the healthcare, food, real estate, and tech industries.
"LakePharma started in 2009 with no outside funding and only half of a single lab space. We wanted to develop a dedicated protein service business to reduce the inefficiencies in biotech discovery and development. Six years later, LakePharma has become the go-to biologics contract research organization for pharma and biotech companies, providing a full range of service in antibody and protein engineering, cell line development, and protein production," commented Hua Tu, founder and CEO. "Building a business takes a long time. It does not get any easier. We are extremely proud to be among The Fast 100 list. We could not have achieved this without valued customers and our phenomenal employees working hard every day to build the best system, revolutionize this industry and benefit the world."
