Drug development consultancy KLIFO expands to the Netherlands
KLIFO A/S has acquired MediServ, a life science company based in the Netherlands. MediServ provides life science services to pharmaceutical, medical device and biotech companies and the company’s services include clinical research and regulatory affairs. With this acquisition, KLIFO now has offices in four core locations in Europe.
MARKET POSSIBILITIES IN THE NETHERLANDS
The Netherlands is a top country in Europe for export and import of medical devices and holds the eighth position worldwide for patent applications in the field of life sciences and health. This, together with the proximity of MediServ to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and its established operational base in Belgium, will bolster KLIFO’s ability to provide its clients with even more targeted solutions to help them progress in their drug development journeys. “KLIFO and MediServ have collaborated over several years through PSN Research which both companies have been partners and shareholders in. So, it seems only natural to integrate the MediServ team into the KLIFO family, now that the opportunity has arisen,” explains Alejandra Mørk, chief executive officer for KLIFO.
