25+ Years of Biotech Expertise
For over two decades, we’ve been helping startup and larger-scale biotech and life sciences firms build out and migrate to new office space, expand research and development functions, begin clinical trials, and later commercialize products and/or complete an initial public offering. IT infrastructure is critical to all of this—as is analyzing any security and threat-related information to keep these organizations and their intellectual property safe and secure. We have helped these companies grow from just 10 employees to more than 1,000 and have consistently been able to scale our services and offerings to best meet their needs.
We at ICE have assisted biotech companies at all the five stages of Life Sciences Development, from startup to manufacturing/commercialization. The business and IT needs and requirements are very different at different stages of the company.

“We engaged with ICE when we were 35 employee company. We grew rapidly and on an adhoc basis. Our IT provider was not very experienced or knowledgeable. After engaging ICE, they right away performed the initial comprehensive IT audit and assessment, submitted a detailed report explain the issues/challenges and provided detailed solutions and recommendations. They were very patient with us and explained all the solutions in detail. Then they migrated us to a secure, reliable, and high-performance IT infrastructure with emphasize on cloud services. Also, we had outgrown our current IT space, ICE worked with the General Contractor and helped us plan in moving to a new 120,000 sq. ft. office building, ICE took care of the new office server-room build-out and IT-related services. ICE did it all. They mapped server-room, power, HVAC, conference room setup, ISP, and cabling requirements. They selected, ordered, and installed data and voice lines. They configured and set up our entire IT hardware and software infrastructure—servers, firewall, switches, backup, storage, and everything else. They worked directly with all the vendors and updated us weekly. In fact, ICE even worked with the moving company to transfer over our existing T hardware and helped us settle in. Thanks to ICE, the move went very smoothly. ICE is our managed IT service provider.”
