Frontage Laboratories, an Exton, Pennsylvania-headquartered contract research organization, has acquired Concord Biosciences, which was the company formed from the contract research activities of Ricerca Biosciences, a CRO and contract development and manufacturing organization based in Concord, Ohio.

In June 2017, Olon S.p.A., an Italy-headquartered CDMO of active pharmaceutical ingredients and generics supplier, acquired the Chemical Division of Ricerca Biosciences.

Concord Biosciences supports the pharmaceutical, agricultural, chemical, and animal health industries with drug safety, metabolism, bioanalytical, residue, and environmental fate studies.
