Our Clinical Trials team members are skilled in working closely with customers to capture every detail.
Our commitment to quality assures Standard Operating Procedures are strictly implemented and that current Good Clinical Practice (GCP) standards are adhered to throughout each project. We have participated in trials to develop new and improved infectious disease testing or instrument development, supporting companies such as Abbott Laboratories, Baxter Biologics, Ortho Diagnostics and Roche Diagnostics.
We are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. We hold a license issued by the FDA and are accredited by the AABB under a voluntary inspection program. We also are regulated by various state and local agencies that ensure the purity, potency and safety of the blood supply as well as the quality of many of the services we provide. Self-inspection and strict internal controls enhance this system of quality assurance.
