About Us



Scitegrity was founded in 2011 by Joe Bradley and Ian Johns, former Pfizer, Roche and GSK drug discovery scientists and data managers.

Starting in 2014 and in collaboration with several major pharmaceutical companies we developed Controlled Substances Squared as system designed to answer the deceptively simple looking question of “is this chemical controlled or regulated anywhere in the world”.

Through our compliance hub platform we also now also offer tariff coding and drug abuse potential assesments

Today our solutions are by scientists, compliance officers, sample logistics teams and sales/business development managers globally, including from 5 of the worlds top 10 pharmaceutical companies, chemical suppliers, regulators, CROs and forensics labs who trust and rely on our solutions.

We’ve expanded well beyond our inital focus on controlled drug legislation with the mission to make all chemical regulations searchable by chemical structure.

The key team

When working in a field as specialised as chemical regulations, trade compliance and scientific research it is imperative that those delivering data solutions understand the needs
of the scientist, the legislation, chemistry, chemistry searching and how to bring all this together in easy to use, accurate and reliable solutions.
Our team is made up of just that scientists and software developers who combine many years of hands on lab experience, software development, regulatory knowledge and chemical search wizardry.

Ian Johns

Scitegrity Founder and head of data quality.

I spent 15 years at Roche, 8 as a hands-on synthetic chemist and 7 in a combined information science/data management role. In 2001 I joined Pfizer, where I’ve held senior management roles in the chemistry and scientific support departments, with responsibility for controlled substance compliance on large compound libraries.
My areas of expertise include Controlled Substances laws, chemical registration, searching and inventory management,
ELNs, collaboration / outsourcing data management and the support of scientists
on scientific applications and processes.
