Our History

We were originally formed in 2014, following the merger of a number of specialist CROs (Agenda 1 Analytical Services, Peakdale Molecular, CXR Biosciences).

Following further acquisition to expand our offering in 2017 (Aquila Biomedical) we were acquired by the precision instrument company, Spectris in 2018 and joined the Malvern Panalytical group within Spectris.

In 2023 following further investment by Limerston Capital we once again became an independent organisation.
