Supporting Services - Logistics Support
By utilizing our wholly-owned harmonized laboratory facilities in the United States, Europe, Singapore and China, Eurofins Central Laboratory is able to accomodate clinical trials of any nature, size, foot print or complexity. Especially with the increasing number of study protocols that involve a variety in esoteric testing like therapeutic drug monitoring, it is of pivotal importance to use globally standardized laboratory facilities that are situated close to the patients.
The global footprint of Eurofins Central Laboratory ensures specimen integrity, optimal turn around times of results and manageability of the logistic processes and associated costs.
Every year, Eurofins Central Laboratory produces and ships over 350.000 specimen collection and transportation kits to investigator sites all over the world.
To facilitate ambient, cooled and dry ice transportation of all these human specimens back into the central laboratory, Eurofins is using preferred couriers offering the best case scenario selected per country and offered service. By using a limited number of couriers we create operational efficiencies and maximize volume discounts which benefit our customers.
By deploying just one logistic operating procedure regardless of the specific laboratory testing requirements, we significantly lower the disturbance for investigators and research nurses.
Sample tracking and tracing
Eurofins Central Laboratory puts a full global logistics system in place to transport samples, which is supported by a customized sample track-and-trace system. It assures the quality and monitors the conditions of the samples and allows direct tracing of samples by our customers.
