ACM Global to Provide Guidance on Increasing Operational Efficiencies in Global Central Labs

Head of Operations Dr Steve Morley to Speak at Partnering with Central Labs, ECG and Imaging Labs Conference 2010

Partnering with Central Labs, Brussels, June 24, 2010 – ACM Global Central Laboratory, the global central lab that continually defines the customer-service standard with its flexible approach, will feature Dr. Steve Morley, head of Operations, Europe, at the Partnering with Central Labs, ECG and Imaging Labs Conference in Brussels to speak on “Using Labs to Increase Operational Efficiencies,” on June 30 at 12:00 p.m..

Dr. Morley will provide insight on how central labs are changing the paradigm for clinical trials logistics and operations. Globalization and the increased number of trials being conducted in emerging markets have resulted in a significant increase in logistics costs; transportation costs being a great example, as it now makes up approximately 50 percent of a central lab budget. Furthermore, he will discuss the expertise and knowledge central lab partners can impart to support the development of the protocol, testing and transportation requirements, leading to operational and financial efficiencies.

As being one of the three conference sponsors, ACM Global understands the important role that logistical efficiencies play in maintaining low costs for sponsors, while continually improving quality results in global trials. The central lab’s local knowledge of foreign markets translates into an understanding of regulatory requirements, logistics and familiarity with customs and local languages. ACM Global offers SOPs with fully standardized and validated systems to enable global clinical trials to be handled in a seamless fashion, no matter where the investigator sites may be located.
