Our Harlow site is located at Spire Green approximately 20 miles North East of London.

We currently have 105 staff on site with over 90 highly qualified scientists in the broad areas of chemistry and biology. Working closely with its sister site in Saffron Walden, the Harlow site provides in vitro drug discovery services for our Partner organisations.

Since its foundation, the Harlow site has provided drug discovery services to multiple partners and these collaborations cover the spectrum from small, single discipline projects to fully integrated projects.

This site has extensive experience of in vitro drug discovery including molecular biology, biochemical and cellular assay development, high-throughput screening, human blood derived primary cell-based assays, medicinal chemistry, complex synthetic chemistry, analytical chemistry and computer-aided drug design and works cooperatively with the Saffron Walden site for ADME profiling, structural and the provision of compound libraries. In addition, Harlow also is home of the scale up, pharmaceutics and formulations teams that support projects nearing pre-clinical candidate nominations.
