BioPharma Services has acquired intellectual property and human resource assets from Bioanalytical Laboratory Services (BLS), including a list of validated assays.

According to the contract research organization (CRO), BLS, also a CRO, has been building a bioanalytical research center specializing in complex method development, method validation, and biological sample analysis for pre-clinical and clinical drug trials (BA/BE studies), over the past three years.

The center was led by Lab Director, Nicola Hughes, Ph.D, who will now serve on BioPharma’s Executive Team as the Vice-President of Lab Operations.

Through the acquisition, BLS assets will be combined with BioPharma’s existing Bioanalytical Lab – further expanding the company’s analytical services.

Renzo DiCarlo, BioPharma Services CEO commented that under Hughes’ leadership, the expanded lab will “immediately offer challenging and complex new assays​,” which he said is just one of many benefits associated with the labs merging assets.

Any current BLS client projects will be completed as planned at the existing BLS facility.
