About Us

Insect Research & Development Limited was established in 1984 as the Medical Entomology Centre and restructured as Insect R&D Limited in 2002. 

We are an independent contract research company with a global client base providing tailored solutions that are flexible and adaptive to the needs of our clients.

We are located in a modern complex with purpose-built laboratories on the outskirts of Cambridge, England, one of the world’s premier science centres.

Based on years of experience conducting laboratory screening and testing of insecticides and devices designed to minimise the impact of arthropods on human and veterinary health, we offer new product development, reformulations, a wide range of product testing, and community based clinical trials. In addition we can also offer insect and foreign body identification and consultancy services.  

Our aim is to provide a bespoke package — from concept to completion.
