Cerilliant Corporation, located in Round Rock, Texas, a suburb of Austin, is a global
leader in providing certified reference standards for critical applications. The
company has been providing certified reference materials for over 30 years. Cerilliant
is an ISO Guide 34 and ISO/IEC 17025 accredited & ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 certified
company and has grown to become a world leader in providing a wide variety of high
quality reference standards and materials for forensic/toxicology, clinical/diagnostic,
environmental, nutraceutical, and pharmaceutical analysis.
Formerly known as the Analytical Reference Materials Division of Radian International,
the company began producing chemical reference standards in 1980 to address the
needs of the emerging environmental testing industry and was the first to produce
13C labeled chlorinated dioxins and furans in cooperation with Cambridge Isotope
Laboratories. Cerilliant was also the first to offer isotope-labeled drugs-of-abuse
reference standards to the forensic drug testing industry and pioneered DEA exempt
preparations of controlled substances in solution.
In 2000, Radian's parent, URS Corporation, made the decision to divest the division.
Cerilliant was formed following the purchase of the division by private investors.
Since its formation in August 2000, Cerilliant has steadily grown from 23 to over
85 employees and serves more than 2000 active customers, including federal and state
governmental organizations and laboratories, private laboratories, hospitals, universities,
pharmaceutical companies, contract research organizations, and analytical instrument,
medical device and test kit manufacturers. Cerilliant's products are distributed
throughout the entire world.
In December, 2010, Cerilliant was acquired by Sigma-Aldrich Corporation. Headquartered
in St. Louis, Missouri, Sigma-Aldrich is a leading life science and high technology
company specializing in chemical and biochemical products and kits used in scientific
research, biotechnology, pharmaceutical development, the diagnosis of disease, and
