Founded in 1998 and based in Sunnyvale California, Cepheid is a molecular diagnostics company that develops, manufactures and markets fully integrated systems for testing in the clinical market, and non-clinical market.

The company’s systems enable rapid, sophisticated molecular testing for organisms and genetic-based diseases by automating otherwise complex manual laboratory procedures. Cepheid’s strategy is to become the leading supplier of integrated systems and tests for molecular diagnostics. To achieve its strategy, Cepheid needs to invest in its plant and equipment, while maintaining a well-trained and highly skilled manufacturing workforce.

This application for Cepheid was designated a Critical Proposal by the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development based on the Company’s planned expansion and commitment to adding new jobs in California.

“I heard about Herrera & Company at my previous employer (Covidien) and they were extremely satisfied,” said Tamanna Prashar, Senior Director at Cepheid. “After evaluating several ETP consultants listed on the agencies website we decided to go with Herrera & Company. We are extremely pleased with the results and looking forward to earning our ETP funding.”
