Contract research organisation Cutest Systems has acquired Reading Clinical Research (RCR Aspect Ltd) as part of ongoing expansion.
RCR Aspect specialises in human volunteer studies for beauty care, medical devices and pharmaceutical products and Cutest Systems expects the purchase will strengthen its portfolio of services across all these areas.
RCR Aspect was set up in 2013 by clinical trials specialist Laura Marshall, who sadly passed away in 2014.
Stewart Long, CEO at Cutest Systems, said of the move: “This acquisition is part of the strategic expansion of Cutest Systems following new investment in 2015, and will further strengthen our services in the personal care, medical device and pharmaceutical sectors, supporting the ongoing growth of the combined companies. In addition, Laura Marshall was a personal friend of all of us at Cutest and we are pleased that there is a legacy for the highly respected business she created. We are pleased to be providing ongoing service and support for clients of RCR Aspect and looking forward to working with them in the future.”
Over the next few months, the RCR Aspect business will be fully integrated into Cutest Systems.
