Simbec-Orion Laboratory Services Pathology Expertise

Dedicated pathology support for international clinical trials.

Designed exclusively for the biopharmaceutical industry with over 30 years of consistent, high quality delivery.

Simbec-Orion assigns a dedicated Principal Scientist as part of its service plan, who support trial implementation, review testing and any trial-specific protocol requirements and design a laboratory schedule. These Principal Scientists maintain ongoing communication with the Study Manager until trial completion.

We understand the need for rapid results and are committed to expedited analysis and electronic results transfer (upon authorisation) to ensure our sponsors are able to access their information as quickly as possible.

Radioisotopes Laboratory

Our Radioisotopes Laboratory performs radioactivity measurements for human ADME and mass balance studies. Radio- HPLC and LC-MS/MS techniques are then used to investigate metabolite profiles and to assist the identification of putative metabolites.
