2016 has been a very eventful year for BioAgilytix. We have marked a number of milestones that will serve as a strong foundation for continuing our commitment to bioanalytical excellence in 2017. As always, none of this would be possible without the support of our customers, and we are excited by the new and expanded capabilities we can bring to these partnerships as we move forward together toward our shared goals in biotherapeutics innovation.
In case you missed some of our key announcements, we’ve compiled our favorite events, content, and accomplishments from this past year into a recap below.
Growing Globally, Expanding Best-of-Breed Capabilities
Our year kicked off to a great start with the announcement that BioAgilytix would be expanding our team with the acquisition of IPM Biotech, a German-based bioanalytical contract research laboratory renowned for its expertise in large molecule bioanalysis, particularly in the area of immunogenicity. As part of this global growth, we executed plans to strategically expand both our North Carolina-based and German-based laboratories. These methodical lab enhancements have helped us ensure that we have the high-quality resources in place to best serve our customers’ bioanalytical needs on both continents.
Throughout 2016 we also welcomed over 35 new hires with many more to come in 2017. We continue our commitment of onboarding the best and brightest scientists, to support our customers with premium science, service, and quality.
Enhancing Our Online Presence
In addition to building out our physical facilities, we also focused efforts on transforming our website to deliver more content, education, and value to all visitors. You also may have noticed the recent change to our homepage, which now showcases our latest valuable content features front and center – white papers, webinars, interactive tools, and more – so you can quickly gain access to fresh content.
Newly Designed Biomarker Menu
We went live with the redesign of our robust menu of over 400 biomarkers this summer, which includes additional filtering mechanisms to make it easy to find the biomarker you need. You can sort biomarkers by name, status, and disease state, or submit your novel assay requirements to our scientists, who will help you identify a right-fit biomarker solution.
Expert Insight via BioAgilytix’s Blog
This year we ramped up activity on our blog to enable the scientific voices on our team to share their perspectives and insights on key bioanalytical topics. You can check out some of the most popular posts here.
Achieving Industry Recognition Along the Way
We were honored to be recognized with several prestigious awards in 2016, including being named to the Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Companies in America, and coming in at #7 for the Triangle Business Journal’s Fast 50 Awards. We were also named a finalist for this year’s Scrip Awards in the ‘Best Contract Research Organization – Niche Providers’ category.
These are just a few of the successes we’ve been able to achieve over the course of the year, and have much more in store for 2017 – all aimed at benefiting our customers by delivering the highest quality expertise, science, and service for your large molecule bioanalytical needs.
To all of our clients, colleagues, and friends: thank you for helping us make this a year to remember for BioAgilytix, and for allowing us to do what we love each day by continually advancing large molecule innovation. We’re all looking forward helping you achieve a successful 2017!
