Henrico-based Genetworx sees massive growth during the COVID crisis as a prelude to future business development

As the coronavirus pandemic surged early in 2020, Brandywine Living, a New Jersey-based company that operates assisted-living communities in seven states including Virginia, found itself in the same position as many other senior living facilities and institutions.

They were all scrambling to find laboratories that could conduct COVID-19 tests for their residents and staff.

“This virus is insidious and invisible, and many of the transmitters are asymptomatic,” said Ken Segarnick, the chief corporate officer of Brandywine, which has more than 3,000 residents in its 31 communities and about 2,000 employees.

“You have to test people early,” he said. The turnaround time on tests also is key for helping to control any spread of the virus, he said.

Brandywine Living turned to Genetworx, a Henrico County-based laboratory company that started operations eight years ago in the Innsbrook Corporate Center.

Genetworx provides a variety of laboratory services. When the pandemic hit, though, the company jumped into COVID-19 testing, ramping up its staff, equipment and real estate footprint to do so.
