The corporate name change to Inotiv, Inc. reinforces the Company’s contract research services brand originally launched in November 2019, and represents the coming together of the Company’s legacy contract research services with those acquired in the Seventh Wave Laboratories, Smithers Avanza Toxicology Services, and Pre-Clinical Research Services acquisitions. The unified Company continues to provide top-tier in vivo toxicology, pharmacology, drug metabolism, bioanalysis, pathology, pharmacokinetic, and surgical and medical device discovery and development solutions.
“Since the launch of the Inotiv brand in 2019, we’ve worked hard to execute on our growth strategy by strengthening our capabilities, investing in our service offerings, infrastructure and people, and messaging our ‘Expect More’ philosophy to prospects and clients,” said Company President and Chief Executive Officer Robert Leasure, Jr. “Changing our corporate name was a logical step towards solidifying our brand and clearly communicating what it reflects— a broadly capable, right-sized CRO with a fundamental goal of delivering exceptional client experiences.”
The Company intends to continue to operate its research product manufacturing division under the name BASi Research Products.
