AlcheraBio, founded in 2001, has been part of the Argenta Group since 2008 and is an industry leader in veterinary clinical studies. As a contract research organization (CRO) and animal health consultancy group, the team is dedicated to helping companies achieve their clinical trial goals on time, within budget, and with high-quality data. Their work has contributed to many medical therapies that now improve the lives of animals around the world.

To unite the global company into one brand, ‘AlcheraBio, Part of the Argenta Group’ has been renamed to Argenta. The brand unification amplifies the comprehensive Molecule to Market services portfolio and the seamless experience across the full product development journey that Argenta provides to its customers.  

“Under this one Argenta brand, we will continue to challenge ourselves and keep innovating to develop the best animal health technologies, products, services and partnerships.” says Dr Edward McGruder, Global Head of Research, Development and Innovation.

"Even though our name changes, the passion of our team to keep advancing animal health will stay the same.” says Bryan Beaird, Head of Clinical R&D.

Argenta’s CEO Ben Russell adds, “Behind our brand are our people. It's the people who drive our Molecule to Market solutions, it’s the people behind the science and innovation, and it’s the people who shape the company culture. This name change is a renewed commitment from us all to truly win as a team by working closely together across Argenta in the interest of helping our customers get their molecules to market quickly and efficiently. “

This togetherness, between internal teams as well as external customers and partners, is at the core of Argenta’s refreshed brand. From clinical services to R&D to contract manufacturing, the spirit of partnership is embedded in everything the company does. The new website states: “At Argenta, we believe healthier animals begins with human relationships. So let's make it happen, together.”

About Argenta

Since 2006, we've built our reputation and expertise on a singular focus. To this day, we are the world's only combined global contract research organisation (CRO) and contract manufacturing organisation (CMO) specialising in animal health.

He saw a need in the market for an animal health company that could provide the highest quality services to customers of all sizes, all over the world. We are still dedicated solely to animal health, and our founder's legacy of problem solving and inventiveness lives on within the organisation.
