About BASi®

Mission statement

BASi® provides drug developers with superior scientific research and innovative analytical instrumentation, which saves time, saves money, and saves lives, to bring revolutionary new drugs to market quickly and safely.


Founded in 1974, Bioanalytical Systems, Inc. (BASi®) is a publicly traded, global company headquartered in West Lafayette, Indiana, that provides contract research services and sophisticated, niche instrumentation to the life sciences industry, primarily in drug research, discovery, and development in commercial and academic settings. BASi® also provides critical testing services for biotech and the rapidly growing generic and biosimilars drug sectors.

For four decades, BASi® has established itself as an industry leader in contract research and as a resource for instrumentation that meets the demanding requirements of today’s research labs. This can be attributed to an exceptional scientific team, originally established by company founder, Purdue University chemistry professor Peter Kissinger, and our leadership team, all of whom are results oriented and client focused. Indeed, the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, academic centers, and myriad of startup companies in drug development and biotech count on BASi’s expertise in the demanding fields like electrochemistry and mass spectrometry; our unique capabilities in liquids, creams, patches and transdermals; and our unparalleled record with FDA audits to execute projects accurately, on schedule and on budget.

BASi® instrumentation like the BASi Culex NxT™ automated sampling system can be found in labs around the world and is readily available through our dynamic online “store”. This dynamic portal provides customers with a wealth of information, access to experts, the ability to customize instrumentation for their lab, and a wide range of consumables. BASi® has a second location near Evansville, Indiana, dedicated to meeting the requirements of the preclinical toxicology and veterinary markets via animal models.
