Contract Research

Ridgeway Research is a contract research organization (CRO).

This means we provide research services, on a contract basis, to the veterinary, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, and to academic institutes. Ridgeway Research has a dedicated research department. Our study investigators have many years of experience between them and are very prompt in delivering reliable results. We also pride ourselves in offering excellent support to sponsors and customers in general. Because we’re based in the UK, we work with the world’s most stringent animal welfare legislation, and we’re proud to do so.

How we can help you develop your products

We work with clients from all over the world. We design, manage and report on a range of livestock, poultry and game bird studies to help you develop your products and gather the data you need to register a new medicine or vaccine.

Our facility is fully licensed to conduct studies to both GLP and GCP level and we typically run studies concerning pharmacokinetics an pharmacodynamics, This would typically include: residues, vaccines (both preclinical and clinical), toxicity as well as feed analysis, which has to be conducted according to EFSA guidance.

Our CRO capacity includes:

  • On-site and field studies, or a combination of both
  • A dedicated QA unit
  • A biosafety Level 2 Containment Facility – it is possible for us to conduct studies on pathogens that are zoonotic and harmful to humans, such as salmonella.
  • Haematology,  biochemistry,  bacteriology,  pharmacokinetic and residue testing through our links with other GLP compliant laboratories
