Our History

Concept Life Sciences was formed in 2014 to deliver a knowledge based, science led business focused on delivering a comprehensive platform of services to clients requiring innovative science based solutions. Our focus is on problem solving, quality, collaboration, communication and flexibility.

By bringing together teams of highly trained scientists, excellent laboratory facilities and an in-depth understanding of our core markets, we have created a business that is greater than the sum of its parts.

This synergy between our different operations means we can introduce a growing range of complementary services to our established client base while also developing new opportunities for our services going forward. We will continue to expand through a mix of organic growth and targeted acquisition.

In order to deliver the science our clients demand, our business is focused on a number of core sectors. We support drug discovery and development in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets. We provide testing and specialist analytical services and consultancy to the food and environmental sectors. We provide toxicology services to the agrochemical, consumer products, chemical and pharmaceutical industries and materials chemistry services to the petrochemical industry.
