Inotiv, Inc. Broadens Pathology Services to Include Medical Device Pathology and Hires Nicolette Jackson to Lead Effort

West Lafayette, Indiana, UNITED STATES


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind., June 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inotiv, Inc. (NASDAQ:NOTV) (the “Company”, “We”, “Our” or “Inotiv”), a leading contract research organization specializing in nonclinical and analytical drug discovery and development services, today announced the expansion of the Company’s pathology services to include medical device pathology. Nicolette Jackson, DVM, MS, DACVP, has joined the Company as Director, Medical Device Pathology, to lead this effort.

The Company began supporting medical device clients with the 2019 acquisition of Preclinical Research Services, Inc. in Fort Collins, Colorado. The Fort Collins site brought deep expertise in surgical and pharmacology models to support the medical device industry.

Inotiv has a strong team of board certified veterinary clinical and anatomic pathologists who have focused on supporting pharmaceutical research and development. Histology and pathology services supporting the Company’s medical device clients, however, often have been outsourced to third parties.

“I am pleased to announce that we are now able to provide broader and more comprehensive in-house services to our medical device clients,” said Dr. Don Maul, the Company’s Senior Vice President, Surgical Models. “We believe Dr. Jackson’s experience and expertise will enable us to significantly reduce our dependence on outside contractors for medical device pathology.”

Dr. Stewart Jacobson, Sr. Vice President, Pathology at Inotiv added, “I am thrilled that Dr. Jackson is joining Inotiv. Her skills and expertise in medical device pathology are widely recognized in our industry, making her an important strategic addition to our pathology team.”

“I am excited to join a company with such a broad service offering and exceptional reputation,” said Dr. Jackson. “I’ve collaborated with the team at the Fort Collins site for many years and I look forward to supporting Inotiv’s medical device clients on a full-time basis.”

Dr. Jackson is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists. She holds a DVM from Kansas State University, a Master of Science in Biomedical Science from Texas A&M, and a Bachelor of Science in Biological and Agricultural Engineering from Kansas State. Dr. Jackson is Chair of the Medical Device Scientific Interest Group and a member of the Medical Device Implant Site Evaluation Working Group in the Society of Toxicologic Pathology.
