Company History

Since its inception in 1989, IPA has been serving clinical research and biological markets worldwide. With its beginnings in the Biochemistry/Microbiology department at the University of Victoria, IPA expanded and built a new Hybridoma Facility, at the Vancouver Island Technology Park (VITP) in 2005.

Robert Beecroft, Chief Technical Officer and Founder, has implemented 3 key methodologies that have allowed IPA to be set apart from other antibody companies: 1) the Rapid Prime immunization strategy in mice; 2) Single-Step cloning for HAT selection of hybridomas and 3) RMAT –recombinant monoclonal antibody technology for the generation of rabbit monoclonal antibodies.
