Fully integrated bioanalysis

Our bioanalytical laboratory services are available stand-alone, or integrated into a full clinical trial management service with Simbec-Orion.

Whether we’re running your clinical trial or not, our logistics ensure that the bioanalysis fits smoothly into your research and is fully integrated into your project.

We can work in collaboration with other laboratories to manage a sample inventory and offer continuous monitoring of logistics, with sample traceability and shipment visibility throughout. From end-to-end, the process is transparent.

The full sample lifestyle process is managed through our Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), Clinaxys™. It ensures a smooth process, minimising human-error for reliable logistics.

We can also transfer methodologies from other laboratories if required.
