In 2000, President and co-founder Robin Woods with her decade of extensive contract laboratory experience began to focus her attention on bioanalysis and the creation of Alturas Analytics, Inc. Co-founder Shane Needham, Ph.D., brought a history of LC-MS/MS bioanalytical experience. The combination of business and operational insight along with scientific expertise and pharma industry experience created a foundation that has successfully led Alturas for over 20 years of sustained organic growth.
Our state-of-the-art purpose-built laboratory houses the most technically advanced MS/MS instrumentation. Streamlined processes and software automation means we have the capacity to provide the highest levels of quality, service, and rapid turnaround for sample analysis and data delivery.
For over two decades, Alturas Analytics has developed a scientific team with extensive knowledge that supports programs from drug discovery and development to IND submissions and new drug approvals. With a low annual turnover rate, our sponsors can have the confidence of working with a consistent team throughout the life of each project.
Today, Alturas continues to lead the industry into the future, contributing to the latest technologies and developing novel methodologies.
