The Leader in Innovative Central Laboratory Services for Cell and Gene Therapy Trials

Cell and Gene therapies are exciting and promising treatments that have the potential to change the lives of patients and their families across the globe. From a central laboratory perspective, management of these complex trials requires specialized capabilities, tools and experience. From designing novel immune response and biomarker assays to maintaining strict chain-of-custody sample tracking, these treatment approaches require a central laboratory partner with flexible, agile processes and specialized expertise in Cell and Gene therapy development.

LabConnect understands both the scientific and logistical requirements of these complex trials and has created innovative tools and services to support their execution.
