DC Biosciences

A Company set up for Scientists by Scientists


Between 2006 and 2016 DC Biosciences Ltd operated as Dundee Cell Products Ltd (DCP). DCP was founded in 2006 as a spin-out of the internationally renowned School of Life Sciences of the University of Dundee by Professor Angus Lamond (Lamond Lab). Since spin-out the company has developed close interactions with researchers across a number of internationally acclaimed institution and research organisations. In 2007 and again in 2009 the company secured equity investment funding from a syndicate of angel investors and the Scottish Co-investment Fund to finance and expand its activities. Today, DC Bioscience is recognised as a leading global player in proteomic services and molecular biology.
