Quotient Clinical in move to private equity

Quotient Clinical, a provider of outsourced, early stage drug development services to the pharmaceutical industry, has been acquired from the Quotient Bioresearch Group by Bridgepoint Development Capital for an undisclosed sum.

Employing over 200 people, Quotient Clinical has developed a platform which offers an integrated approach to formulation development, “real-time” drug product manufacturing and clinical testing.  Using this platform has been proven to significantly reduce the time and cost of the early stage drug development process.

Quotient Clinical Chief Executive Officer Mark Egerton said: “We are very excited at the pace with which our platform is being adopted in the marketplace. Working with Bridgepoint Development Capital will now provide the support to catalyse the next phase of our growth and evolution.  Their experience in helping portfolio companies to scale will be invaluable as we endeavour to grow our business and maintain the high levels of customer satisfaction that we currently enjoy”.
