Perfectus Biomed increases jobs in the North West

Fund: Biomedical

Daresbury-based Perfectus Biomed has vowed to boost the North West jobs pool, with 25 roles on offer over the next three years following investment from The North West Fund...

The firm, based at Daresbury Science Park, provides microbiological testing for its clients, offering 'fit for purpose' experiments in a scenario that is made to mimic real life antimicrobial scenarios.

Since the £150,000 investment from The North West Fund, the firm has strengthened its commercial reach internationally, via increased promotional activity. The funding was also used to increase the number of staff the business employs, which now amounts to eight.

The growth of the company has enabled Perfectus Biomed to win a number of new private clients, and is now aiming to increase its headcount further over the next three years, as well as branching out further into the public sector.

Dr Samantha Westgate, CEO at Perfectus Biomed, said, "We have witnessed phenomenal growth in the last couple of years. There has been an influx of new business since we increased our headcount, and with a larger team, we have been able to branch out, expanding our offering and providing services to a greater number of clients. The North West has become a hub for the life sciences sector, so it is important that we keep increasing the amount of jobs we have available to match the growth of the region.

"The North West Fund has been incredibly supportive throughout the last two years. Not only did the team provide the funding we needed to expand, but they continued to support and develop our strategy, and really helped structure the company to become what it is today."
