Clinical Reference Laboratory Inc to build European laboratory hub in UK

25-Aug-2009 - United Kingdom

Clinical Reference Laboratory Inc has concluded a deal with Quotient Bioresearch that will see CRL Global services establish its new European laboratory hub in the UK. CRL Global Services has a track record of more than 18 years in delivering testing services to support clinical development programs in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and CRO industries. Entering in to this agreement marks a clear strategic shift – to move away from the company’s earlier partnership within Europe.

CRL Global Services has chosen to construct its own laboratory in Cambridgeshire, UK, embedded within the existing facilities of Quotient Bioresearch. It will provide a further full service laboratory arm to CRL Global Services’ existing global structure. The contract also provides for an immediate close collaboration between the companies on the development and delivery of new services, particularly in the areas of bioanalysis, biomarkers and microbiology.

Leader of the organisation for more than 10 years, Rajani Prasad, PhD, vice president, clinical trials and Arnold Verbeek, PhD, general manager of Clinical Reference Laboratory – Europe Ltd, commented: “Our agreement with Quotient Bioresearch signals a new chapter in CRL’s development. We are confident that by using our own operations and applying our technology on a global scale CRL guarantees clients the most streamlined, highest quality and best value available in clinical trials support.”
