LabConnect, a provider of global central laboratory testing services, is expanding its North American headquarters in Seattle. The success of LabConnect’s Scientific Operations Support (SciOps) team and overall company growth are behind its move to larger quarters in Seattle’s historic district.
“We needed to expand because we are growing,” said Eric Hayashi, president and CEO of LabConnect. “But beyond the additional space needed for our core office functions, we wanted to create just-in-time space for our growing SciOps team members who spend most of their time off site with clients. This move will give us room to double our capacity and allow us to better serve our clients.”
The SciOps team is a special unit comprised of industry experts with a minimum of 10 years of experience who offer short- or long-term functional outsourcing services for pharmaceutical research.
“Our customers want to focus on getting the job done well, not on the human resources aspects,” Hayashi said. “We help with both. We provide experienced research professionals and take care of all the details such as payroll and benefits. Demand for this service has been strong since the beginning and it is still growing.”
