StageBio has merged with Alizée Pathology to form the leading provider of specialized histology, pathology, biomarker development, and archiving services for the biopharmaceutical, medical device and contract research industries. StageBio was recently created by the mergers of Histo-Scientific Research Laboratories (HSRL), Vet Path Services (VPS) and Tox Path Specialists (TPS), and now includes Alizée Pathology. StageBio is a portfolio company of Ampersand Capital Partners.
“Dr. Serge Rousselle, Dr. Joan Wicks and the Alizée staff bring unique histopathology capabilities to StageBio. These services enable us to offer the industry an even broader range of highly specialized histopathology and imaging services,” said Mr. Thomas Galati, StageBio CEO. “We have successfully merged HSRL, VPS and TPS, and are excited to add Alizée’s expertise to our growing list of offerings.”
Dr. Serge Rousselle, Co-Founder of Alizée Pathology, commented, “StageBio and Alizée have been working closely for years, and this union is a natural evolution of that relationship. The broad client base and services at StageBio, combined with the specialty expertise at Alizée, are a winning combination for our clients.” The merger adds laboratory space in Thurmont and Cumberland MD, as well as staff with experience in specialty medical devices and biomarkers/biologics that will complement the StageBio team based in Virginia, Massachusetts, Ohio, and Maryland. The combined company now employs 28 board-certified (ACVP) Veterinary Pathologists with a total employee base of over 150.-PR Newswire
