Marieanne Miller, Co-Founder of Roylance Pharma said “We’re excited to bring the Roylance Pharma teams expertise into IBX. 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.”
