And yes, we have been extremely busy providing our technologies to support COVID-19 testing and research.

We strive to create an open, inviting, and inclusive culture – we care about you as a person, not just a team member.  We embrace the principles of emotional and social intelligence – which helps our employees improve relationships, manage stress, and enhance connections.  Establishing and maintaining relationships is part of the foundation of our culture - teams are more like family than co-workers.  

Our campus speaks volumes. Headquartered in Madison, employees work in and around a campus with multiple buildings that are integrated into a natural setting with trails, ponds, woods and a restored prairie.  Sustainability is important – we invest in energy efficiency and use renewable energy.  Our culinary team offers top notch food to employees – including an onsite garden to supply fresh produce.   Check out our campus through this map, and learn more about the our people and sustainable practices.
