Scientists Discussing Test Results in Laboratory

What we do?

We offer a comprehensive range of central laboratory services to support your clinical trials. With worldwide logistics, expert sample management and a portfolio of analytical testing services, we provide customized, easy-to-use blood sampling kits and study and site-specific laboratory manuals that ensure harmonization across all clinical study sites. Our solution-minded project management teams will also oversee expiry of provided materials as well as the logistics required for global sampling at a range of temperature conditions (ambient, cooled or frozen).

Our central laboratory offers a wide range of analytical solutions, including safety analysis, biomarkers and pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD) and testing to good manufacturing practice (GMP) standards. It also has the capacity for long term storage of study samples – at ambient temperature for biopsies, biomarkers at -20°C to PK back up samples at -80°C and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) samples in liquid nitrogen.

Our global study database provides further advantages as highly customized laboratory reports throughout all regions, single database even for global trials and tailored-made data transfers which ease uploads to eCRFs. Our secure online platform gives defined users further insights into the progress of your clinical trial – e.g., recruitment per site.

Added value

Our experienced and proactive project management team can also support you with:

  • Additional ancillary materials (centrifuges, freezers, incubators, etc.)
  • Logistical support if shipments of laboratory materials or patient samples are disrupted

Cost effective

Checking stability during the proposal phase reduces the risk of hidden costs arising later on in the trial process. Our experts will check the stability of laboratory parameters during bidding to ensure you have the right cost-effective logistic solution that does not jeopardize quality.
