  • A Message from the President


    A Message from Robin Woods, Alturas Analytics President
    As the sun sets on a successful 2018, and we open 2019 feeling invigorated and are poised for another growth year at Alturas, we would like to thank our partners for your continued confidence in and commitment to the Alturas team.
    Most exciting to share is that Alturas is entering the planning stages for an expansion that will more than double our size. We have identified and placed a purchase option on land adjacent to our current building. We have also hired an architect, assembled a building planning committee and are refining layout ideas to build a state-of-the-art facility that is specifically designed to be a streamlined, efficient bioanalytical lab.
    As a continuation of our company’s development, we have increased our offerings in support of regulated studies. Microflow and hybrid LC-MS/MS techniques are now fully engaged in routine analysis that include new biological entities, biomarkers, ADCs, as well as small peptides and new chemical entities. We are also very pleased to utilize in-house expertise in pharmacokinetic (PK) and toxicokinetic (TK) analysis by offering PK and TK reporting in support of studies from discover through clinical trials.

    Alturas is also proud to support local non-profits and we are fortunate enough to be able to give back to our community that has supported us for more than 18 years! Here are a few of the organizations we supported this year:
    • Science on Ice  – A great field trip opportunity for schools and community groups that combines science lessons, physical education, and ice skating fun.

    • The Gritman Foundation - The Gritman Foundation is the philanthropic partner of Gritman Medical Center, helping Gritman fulfill its mission of providing extraordinary care to the people in our region.

    • Christmas for Kids - A local non-profit organization providing Christmas gifts and warm clothing for the children of low-income families in Latah County.

    • Alternatives to Violence of the Palouse - An organization that supports victims and survivors of violence in the Palouse region.



    Lastly, we want to wish a heartfelt happy New Year to you. We hope to see you at one of the following events or meetings:
