Labs & Workshop

Develop your products quicker with access to a state-of-the-art chemistry lab, BSL-2 lab, the PerkinElmer Customer Demonstration Lab, hardware workshop, and assembly space.


For chemistry, biology, and physics

Velocity houses 5,000+ ft2 of flexible development lab space so that you can:

  • De-risk technology
  • Generate IP
  • Build prototypes
  • Test your products before launch

We understand that product development is often a multidisciplinary endeavour. That’s why Velocity’s labs accommodate a wide spectrum of product development activities.

Space allocation can also be adjusted as teams grow or product development evolves.

Our facility includes:

  • Wet chemistry lab equipped to support synthetic chemistry, solvent-based operations including coating and dispersion work, and low-risk biological work;
  • BSL-2 lab for higher risk biological development; and
  • Lab ‘lite’ space for lower-risk operations that may involve solvents, dusts, or fumes.

Velocity also offers a suite of shared instrumentation, tools, and equipment that are accessible to approved lab users.

Our resources are made even better by the co-location of PerkinElmer’s $2 million customer demonstration lab within Velocity.

Hardware workshop & assembly space

From prototypes to early production

At Velocity, we know that developing products can take many different paths.

Yet, to create greater value in your company, you need to demonstrate how well your product will work before you sell it.

We have selectively chosen the most effective resources under our roof.

A sample list of our equipment:

  • Laser cutter
  • 3D printers
  • Electronic test equipment
  • Prototyping shop

We also have a network of cost-efficient service providers (e.g., PCB fab, injection molding) both locally and abroad.

Dozens of past Velocity companies have created critical prototypes, demos, and shipped $1M+ of product from our incubator.
