Partner With Subject Matter Experts Backed by a Network of Global Scientists 

Our team has vast experience with primary cells and transfected reporter-gene cell systems and can develop and validate cell-based assays under GxP. In fact, our scientists were responsible for lead optimization and mechanism-of-action studies that led to the discovery of several key drugs that are on the market today, as well as a number of promising new clinical candidates.  We offer the flexibility to support your program at all regulatory stages.

Our team of experts also leverages an innovative model for assay development, qualification, validation, and testing compared to other bioanalytical labs. This ensures we meet your project needs and execute all stages of the assay continuum to achieve continuity of service. We offer infrastructure support including program management to oversee multiple assays at multiple sites. We serve North America, Europe, and APAC with labs geographically suited to your needs and provide bioanalytical support no matter where your clinical trials take place.
