DENVER (AP) — Accelr8 Technology Corp. says it plans to move its headquarters from Denver to Tucson, Ariz.

The company develops instruments to detect microorganisms that could cause disease.

It reported five full-time employees in an annual report filed in October but said Thursday it plans to fill 65 positions in Arizona over the next three years. Accelr8 says headquarters positions will include engineers, scientists, sales and marketing, management, finance and manufacturing.
