EUROFINS SCIENTIFIC : Eurofins Medinet triples central laboratory space in Shanghai, China
7 June, 2010
Eurofins Medinet is pleased to announce that it has relocated its China central laboratory operation to a larger, dedicated facility in Shanghai. The relocation to a new facility comes in response to the rapid increase in clinical trials being conducted in the country and the need to meet the special (mainly regulatory) requirements the industry faces in running clinical trials in China.
Eurofins Medinet has been offering central laboratory services in China since 2003 and established its own Central Laboratory facility near Shanghai in May 2008 to support local and global clinical trials. The new facility's proximity to the Shanghai Hongqiao domestic airport facilitates close management of logistics and specimen integrity. Eurofins Medinet is one of the very few international companies to have established a fully-owned and managed Central Laboratory to serve its customers in China. Offering these services in China makes Eurofins Medinet one of the top central laboratory operators in the world, with 6 wholly-owned laboratories across North America, Europe, and Asia.
The Eurofins Medinet Shanghai facility operates using the same procedures and quality standards that are already established and proven in the other Eurofins Medinet facilities. Moreover, the Eurofins Medinet Shanghai laboratory achieved NGSP Level 1 certification in June 2008 and CAP accreditation in May 2009. The Eurofins Medinet local laboratory not only offers a full range of safety parameters but has extended its offering by adding further specialised testing services such as HPLC and ELISA. In 2009, Eurofins Medinet Shanghai supported over 80 investigator sites from several studies throughout the Chinese territory and this number is continuously increasing.
