About Us

Welcome to IBEX Preclinical Reserach, Inc

IBEX was founded in 2003, since then it has proven to be a trusted outsourced partner and provider of preclinical surgical studies in a variety of laboratory animal species. By focusing on our core values of quality research and superior client service we have grown into research leaders in experimental surgical studies including orthopedics, soft tissue and vascular surgery. We also provide non-surgical studies such as nonsurgical drug toxicity and PK studies.

More About Us

“I have worked with IBEX on several different preclinical models in the past 6 years and I have always been impressed.  Dr. Larson’s expansive knowledge of preclinical research and meticulous surgical technique set IBEX apart from all other CROs I have used.  His team is also very accommodating and responsive to sponsor needs and requests.  They have gone above and beyond on multiple occasions to help hit important deadlines.”
