Seattle-based LabConnect has launched a new service, Scientific Operations Support (SciOps), to offer unique functional outsourcing services to the pharmaceutical research industry.
According to president and CEO Eric Hayashi, LabConnect developed SciOps after executives perceived a need from clients for a team that could manage intricate clinical protocols as well as internal and external research development programs.
“We knew that we needed to go beyond the traditional outsourcing services,” Hayashi said. “With SciOps, clients get exactly who they need from our contract personnel to take on specific projects and research functions.”
LabConnect’s SciOps team gives its clients management control from the beginning, without the time and cost strains of managing internal headcount, payroll and human resources issues. Unlike other outsourcing services, clients have access to tap into the expertise of the company’s senior personnel or specialists within the team to improve study quality and process flow.
In addition to routine testing, sample tracking, data management and specialized testing, LabConnect’s professional support at all levels provides clients the ability to select the services that best fit their needs and budget.
“The degree of integration with client operation often allows the SciOps team to make specific, objective recommendations for product and process improvement,” Hayashi said.
LabConnect’s SciOps team members each have a minimum of 10 years’ experience.
Privately held LabConnect provides global central laboratory testing services to the biopharmaceutical industry to support drug development programs around the world. Its capabilities include routine and specialized testing, safety, esoteric, bioanalytical, pathology and biostorage and logistics services.
