In 2003 the leading scientists employed by BIBRA International Ltd* working in the field of chemical hazard and risk assessment, broke away to form a new, independently-owned, consulting organisation – Toxicology Advice & Consulting Ltd.
Two successful years later, they had the opportunity to go back to BIBRA International Ltd and acquire the Information Services division of the company, which employed a number of other excellent scientists and also owned the world-famous TRACE toxicological database and databank. A new independent company was formed – BIBRA Information Services Ltd – to house this business.
After running both companies – Toxicology Advice & Consulting Ltd and BIBRA Information Services Ltd - successfully side-by-side for 24 months, the management decided the logical next step in the close association was a formal re-integration of the two businesses into one entity, which would have the capability to address all toxicological issues and concerns for its clients.
Bibra – toxicology advice and consulting is good news for all organisations looking for experience, knowledge and ingenuity in the field of chemical hazard and risk assessment. Our consultants are outstandingly qualified – the most junior have over eight years experience of applied toxicology, whilst the senior consultants on the team all have in excess of 30 years of relevant high-level experience.
The unique combination of world-class expertise and consulting skills with an outstanding information system means that we can bring solutions to virtually all the problems faced by both toxicologists and company managers with responsibility for toxicological issues.
* BIBRA was formed in 1961, and operated successfully as a contract research organisation for close to 45 years. In 2005, when the Information Services division was sold to the owners of Toxicology Advice & Consulting Ltd, the remainder of the company was sold to Surrey Clinical Ltd. Unfortunately Surrey Clinical went into liquidation later in 2005.
