Our History

Who we are

aldevron1999.jpgIn 1998, we started Aldevron in a small lab at North Dakota State University (NDSU). Since then, Aldevron has grown into a world-class service organization specializing in nucleic acid and protein production, antibody development, and custom services with operations in the United States and Europe. Our client base spans the globe and includes both the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies and the smallest virtual start-ups.

Headquartered in Fargo, North Dakota, Aldevron maintains direct access to local university talent, a favorable cost structure, and a geographically central location for our expanding service organization. Combining best-in-class quality systems with the ideal operating environment has resulted in the industry’s most compelling service organization, competitive with any other offering across the globe.

Aldevron’s mission is to find customized solutions to your needs, regardless of scale, complexity, or scope. Our goal is to say “Yes” to your request and provide maximum value to your research, clinical, and commercial needs. We encourage clients to bring forward any project or idea. I am directly involved in many of our projects and personally dedicated to our clients’ success no matter what it takes. If Aldevron can’t help service your needs directly, we’ll help you find someone who can.

Aldevron is proud of its reputation as a trusted partner and is committed to direct, honest, and open communication. We understand the relationships we forge with our clients will ultimately determine our mutual success. We welcome comments and suggestions on how we can better serve the scientific community, so please feel free to contact me directly at any time if I may be of assistance.
