IBX, a global leader in biobanking, bioprocessing and analytics, has acquired UK based biospecimen storage specialists Roylance Pharma.
“The team and capabilities within Roylance Pharma perfectly complement those within IBX. Establishing a solid biobanking and bioprocessing hub in the UK servicing Europe, reinforces not only the IBX strategy and mission but also our proposition to clients and commitment to providing world leading biomaterial services,” said Grimwood.
Benedict Roylance, Co-Founder of Roylance Pharma, said “Joining Roylance Pharma and IBX is a natural fit that will benefit both groups of clients and teams. Expanding our reach internationally and sharing the wealth of expertise within both businesses means we can drive further growth and offer greater support in our clients’ research projects.”

With decades of combined experience in MHRA licenced stability storage, biostorage, on site servicing and photostability testing behind us this acquisition will enable us to offer our clients the same high level of attention across a wider range of services.”
“Many research and development projects operate internationally and through this rapid expansion IBX is well placed to provide qality assurance and control with consistent SOPs across regions. As we have just celebrated our first year as IBX (previously RUCDR) I am enormously proud to lay another important piece of our foundation.
