Concept Life Sciences has added new laboratory space at its Alderley Park-based facility in Cheshire, UK to support discovery services growth.

According to the contract research organization (CRO) the new space increases its scientific capacity by more than 30%, adding 75 employees over two facilities with a total of 12,400 square feet.

Our growth of over 30% in the last 12 months and our acceleration into 2018 means we need to have continuing access to the right people and the right science​,” Michael Fort, executive chairman of Concept Life Sciences told us. “The Alderley Park Campus will provide this capacit​y,” he added.

The Manchester-based company’s drug discovery services span medicinal chemistry, pharmacology screening, assay development, and ADME.

Building a presence in the heart of Alderley Park not only makes the company a very attractive place for the recruitment of world class scientists, but the new facility also sits within a leading scientific environment, giving us access to cutting-edge technologies which complement our core service offerings​,” said Fort. “Alderley Park is the premier research hub in the north of England, close to existing lab facilities and Concept's HQ​.”

The CRO also launched​ a US group in June 2016, at which time Fort told us the expansion was a natural progression. The US group offers various chemistry, biology, and analytical services.
