Pyxant Labs is named for the constellation Pyxis Nautica, whose Latin name means "mariner's compass." Pyxis Nautica is associated with the constellation Argo Navis, the ship piloted by Jason and the Argonauts in ancient Greek mythology. Pyxis Nautica embodies our guidance and support for your scientific journey.

Our History

Pyxant Labs Inc. was founded in March of 2000 by Maurice Gaubatz as an entrepreneurial response to a perceived gap in bioanalytical contract research service offerings. Observing how some laboratories lacked a level of science, quality, and service, Maurice and his founding partner, Dave Robaugh, resolved to fill this gap.

As an entrepreneur, Maurice ignored the crowded competitive environment, awful market timing, hostile capital markets, two major economic recessions, and drew upon 15 years of past experience at The Dow Chemical Company to create Pyxant Labs from the ground up. Pyxant Labs was fortunate to have a steadfast loyal core group of leaders, commitments from talented people to leave good jobs and join the young enterprise, and supportive investors. Maurice and the team at Pyxant Labs have built a company that reliably delivers superior science, utilizing state of the art technology, with a strong focus on customer service, and equitable business practices.
