Hyderabad-based Aragen Life Sciences has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Pune-based Intox. The acquisition will expand Aragen’s end-to-end integrated discovery and development platform for the pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, animal health and agrochemicals industries.
It will enable Aragen to conduct safety assessment studies from a Good Laboratory Practice (GLP)-certified facility for submission to regulatory agencies such as the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA), the United States Environment Protection Agency (USEPA), the European Medicines Agency (EMA), and others globally.
Intox is a reputed GLP certified pre-clinical contract research organization (CRO) with its test facilities in Pune. It has conducted more than 15,000 GLP studies for global clients which include large and mid-sized customers across pharmaceuticals, biopharmaceuticals, plant protection, nutraceuticals, and medical devices.
The acquisition will also expand Aragen’s geographical footprint in India. Aragen currently has research and manufacturing facilities at Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Visakhapatnam in India and a biologics facility in California, USA.
