The acquisition of ERI is another step in the significant expansion program CANTEST's BioPharma Services group has been undergoing.

We are pleased that Dr. David Gray, former President of ERI, has agreed
to join CANTEST as Laboratory Director for the BioPharma Services group. He will support the integration of the two organizations and oversee the
day-to-day functions of the division."

"ERI's corporate values of continuous improvement, regulatory compliance, technical innovation and client satisfaction are mirrored in CANTEST's corporate philosophy, and I'm very confident that the merging of the two entities will clearly benefit those we serve." adds Dr. Gray.
