BioIVT Acquires UK-based Clinical Trials Laboratory Services

BioIVT

Acquired donor center and laboratory enables BioIVT to ship high quality blood products and blood-derived immune cells efficiently to researchers throughout Europe

BioIVT, a leading provider of research models and services for drug development, today announced that it has acquired Clinical Trials Laboratory Services (CTLS), a donor center and laboratory based in London, UK. CTLS provides dedicated high-quality serum, plasma and blood collection services. It also offers full-service cell processing capabilities on site.

“We are delighted that CTLS is now part of BioIVT,” said BioIVT CEO Jeff Gatz. “This is BioIVT’s first donor center in Europe and we are excited to be able to address our clients’ needs by offering fresh blood and blood-derived products. CTLS expands our immune cell offering, which is one of the fastest growing segments of our company. This acquisition increases our capabilities and improves the efficiency with which we can deliver high quality biospecimens to our clients in Europe.”

All CTLS employees will join BioIVT and CTLS’ London headquarters will become the primary site in Europe for donor collections.

This acquisition increases BioIVT’s capacity to produce fresh peripheral blood mononuclear cells and other immune cell subsets such as natural killer cells, B cells, and T cells to meet clients’ research needs. It also enables BioIVT to ship fresh blood and blood-derived products to researchers anywhere in Europe within 24 hours.

“CTLS is an excellent addition to BioIVT,” said UK General Manager Kelly Sapsford. “The companies complement each other, with CTLS employees sharing our strong work ethic, commitment to supplying the highest quality biospecimens, and unremitting desire to advance medical research across Europe.”

Underscoring CTLS’ commitment to excellence, its staff members are registered with the UK-based Health & Care Professions Council.

“European researchers will be able to rely on BioIVT to provide a consistent supply of fresh blood and blood products for their studies. They will no longer need to contend with variable availability from hospital sources,” Ms. Sapsford added.

“We are excited to be joining BioIVT and expanding the breadth and depth of products and services that we can offer to our customers,” said CTLS Laboratory Director Dr. Rukhsana Ahsan. “We are looking forward to beginning this next phase of our company’s growth and development.”

Financial details about this transaction were not disclosed.

Medpace Reference Laboratories establishes state of the art Flow Cytometry techniques for flexible approaches to clinical trials across multiple therapeutic areas.

Medpace

Cytometry is the process of measuring the properties of individual cells. These properties may include gene or protein expression, chemical properties, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) content, and various cellular functions. The earliest methods of cytometry relied upon light microscopy for the classification and observation of cells and cellular components. Microscopy permitted direct visual observation of cells for the first time, leading to the classification of cells by morphology and insight into cellular functions. However, the time required for microscopic analysis constrains the number of samples or number of cells in each sample that can be examined. Therefore, the utility of microscopy for analysis of rare cells or in situations where sample throughput is a priority is limited. Flow cytometry was developed largely to improve upon these limitations.
