BioAgilytix Recognized with a Top 4 Ranking in the Triangle Business Journal’s 2017 Fast 50 Awards

The Bioanalytical Laboratory Has Been Named One of the Triangle’s Fastest Growing Companies for the Fifth Time in Seven Years

NOVEMBER 14, 2017—Durham, NC—BioAgilytix, a leading provider of contract bioanalytical testing services with specialization in large molecule bioanalysis, has been named as one of Triangle Business Journal’s 2017 Fast 50 Award winners for 2017. This award acknowledges the 50 fastest growing private companies in the Research Triangle Park, NC area. This year’s rankings were revealed at the Fast 50 Awards dinner on November 8th where BioAgilytix placed fourth overall. The winners were selected and ranked based on a formula that counts revenue growth and profitability in the preceding three years (2014-2016).

This marks the fifth time in seven years that BioAgilytix has made the Triangle’s Fast 50 list, having previously appeared in 2016, 2014, 2013, and 2011. On what he attributes to the company’s successful, continued growth, Jim Datin, President and Chief Executive Officer of BioAgilytix, stated, “Our high ranking on this year’s Fast 50 list, and on the lists of years past, would not have been possible without the commitment of our scientific and support staff both in the USA and at our new European headquarters. Our motto has always been that the best science demands the best people, and we’ve worked diligently to build a highly talented, diversely skilled, dedicated team that’s able and ready to rise to our customers’ complex bioanalytical challenges.”

“When I founded the company more than nine years ago, I was looking to offer a better, expert resource for those with complex large molecule studies,” said Afshin Safavi, Founder and Global CSO of BioAgilytix. “Our people have enabled us to deliver on those promises, and to grow into the premier global provider we are today. We are extremely proud to be ranked fourth out of hundreds of applicants for the Fast 50 Awards this year, and excited that our team has been publicly recognized for their valued contributions.”
