Who We Are
CellPath was founded in 1990 from the merger of Histopath and Cytopath, companies owned by the Webber Family. However CellPath can trace its roots much further back to 1969, with the formation of Bethlehem Instruments in Hemel Hempstead, England by our current Chairman Peter Webber.
The company grew through the 1970's and early 80's and was instrumental in introducing a number of histology products that were first to the market place. The company began selling RDC rapid decalcifier, a product that still forms a core part of our histology consumables range. Over the years CellPath has built a reputation for innovation, novel product design and quality of both its products and its service. CellPath were the first to introduce an alternative source to Bayer for the embedding cassettes. Another first came with the introduction of the disposable microtome blade to the U.K. market.
In 1987 the company introduced the Aylesbury Spatula an alternative to the Ayre Spatula. This sampling device improved the quality of cervical samples taken. Over the next decade the company began manufacture of some of its best known products - CerviBrush, CerviKit, Ortho Stains and the CytoFocus CD, to become market leaders of Cytology products in the UK .
In 1999 CellPath was sold to Medical Solutions PLC, an LSE listed company. However in December 2002 CellPath was purchased back by its founder members the Webber Family. In November 2005 CellPath moved into their new 20,000 sq. ft headquarters on the Mochdre Enterprise Park in Newtown, Mid Wales.
Since then CellPath has gone from strength to strength. The innovative CellNass Archive Solution has also grown with a new build in 2013 which has doubled the original CellNass capacity.
