AIT Laboratories Announces Name, Brand Identity for New Division

INDIANAPOLIS, May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- AIT Laboratories, which specializes in pain management, forensics, and clinical testing, is announcing that its newly created pharmaceutical testing division will be known as AIT Bioscience, LLC. Recently, AIT Laboratories announced that the division will be located at its Indianapolis, Ind. headquarters.

"AIT Bioscience will operate under the same quality principles that I founded AIT Laboratories on 19 years ago," said AIT Laboratories President and CEO Michael A. Evans, Ph.D. "We have some of the industry's most veteran scientists leading the new division, including Ronald Shoup, Ph.D., who brings more than 30 years of leadership, entrepreneurship and scientific expertise to AIT Bioscience." Prior to joining AIT, Dr. Shoup was chief scientific officer of Bioanalytical Systems, Inc. in West Lafayette, Ind.

"Bioanalytical testing is closely aligned with what AIT Laboratories already does in terms of processes and equipment. AIT Bioscience wants to take those resources and apply them to the pharmaceutical industry in ways other CROs only wish they could," Shoup explained. "Our talent and lack of legacy systems allow us to build an organization from the ground up that caters to the client's specific needs. The goal is to work as a partner with drug developers to coordinate activities throughout the testing process and provide access to data in real time as it's produced by our laboratory."

The decision to create AIT Bioscience was based on AIT's desire to improve upon the traditional CRO model. The new company will provide clients the capability to monitor sample activity from point of collection to the final report in a completely paperless environment that assures correctness from one step to the next. Instead of addressing issues after the fact, the company aims to prevent them with novel electronic systems that reject potential deviations and errors in real time.

With a newly constructed laboratory in Indianapolis, AIT Bioscience will be fully operational by the fall of 2009.

Joining Shoup at AIT Bioscience are industry veterans with numerous years of experience in bioanalytical testing.

  • Timothy P. Grever serves as AIT Bioscience laboratory director. Grever comes to AIT Bioscience from Bioanalytical Systems, Inc. in West Lafayette, Ind., where he has held several positions over the past ten years, the most recent being director of bioanalytical operations where he led a 54-member bioanalytical team.
  • Brian D. Beato, Ph.D. serves as senior scientist, mass spectrometry. Prior to joining AIT Bioscience, Beato served as laboratory and technical manager for Covance Bioanalytical Services in Indianapolis, Ind., where he helped start up and expand a bioanalytical LC/MS/MS laboratory. Beato possesses more than 17 years of experience in quantitative pharmaceutical analysis and method development, the majority in bioanalytical LC/MS/MS.
  • Laurel Branstrator will assist AIT Bioscience as director of quality assurance GxP. She has most recently offered her expertise to the industry via her consulting firm, LEB Consulting Services. Prior to her consulting work, she served as senior director of quality assurance at Bioanalytical Systems, Inc.

AIT Bioscience partnered with Indianapolis branding firm Miles Design ( to develop the new brand identity including the logo, marketing materials and website. Miles Design principal Josh Miles stated, "Working with AIT's new bioscience venture is very exciting for us - especially because it's an opportunity to build on a strong relationship with an existing partner. Internally, we had always hoped to 'find another AIT.' So when it actually happened, we were thrilled."
