Resources and Experience

Our team evaluates new In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) devices or assays by comparison to conventional laboratory testing and/or similar molecular or analytic tests.  Additionally, we are actively involved with numerous corporations/investigators in the development or new technologies (alpha, beta, pre-clinical, investigator-initiated studies).  Our laboratories also provide services such as reproducibility/precision testing, access to banks of clinical samples/tissue/microorganisms for the evaluation of new technologies, assays, antimicrobials and detection/identification systems.   We collaborate with many industrial and academic organizations on any phase of the developmental research and clinical trial process, including expert review of biopsy histopathology or cytology.   Our research team is comprised of personnel that are ACRP/SOCRA certified with many years’ experience in all phases and processes for conducting clinical research (GCPs, IRB submissions, contract negotiations).
