Since 2014 BioGrad Limited has become the UK’s leading laboratory-based learning provider for scientists, attracting elite scientists from 526 institutes in 21 countries per year.


In 2020, the company pivoted in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, creating BioGrad Diagnostics – providing a responsive and dynamic Covid-19 testing facility. BioGrad helped to keep the country’s schools open during the crisis before expanding the service to businesses and the wider public. BioGrad is now accredited by UKAS, the independent United Kingdom Accreditation Service responsible for determining the technical competence and integrity of organisations offering testing, calibration and certification services.


The business has recently purchased 61 Stephenson Way, Wavertree Technology Park which requires a full refurbishment.
