ACM Global Central Laboratory Establishes Mumbai-based Subsidiary to Strengthen Lab Services in India

Global Central Lab Takes Hybrid Lab Model to Next Level for High-Quality, Cost-Efficient Clinical Testing

Rochester, NY, Apr. 24, 2012 – ACM Global Central Lab, the central laboratory that continually defines the customer-service standard with its flexible approach, has advanced its hybrid central lab model in Mumbai with a state-of-the art operational facility dedicated to manage clinical trials testing in India and provide study support throughout Asia Pacific. Working in conjunction with the largest diagnostic lab in the region, ACM Global oversees the full complement of study support to keep clinical trials on schedule and on budget, including kit building, shipping logistics, project management, data management and site support.

“We have been able to build a stellar local team that thoroughly understands the nuances of the market, plus the systems and process at ACM Global to maintain our high global standard for global clinical trial testing,” said Nandan Rao, director, India and general manager, Asia Pacific at ACM Global Central Lab.

ACM Global first established an operational footprint in India seven years ago, and established its hybrid lab model three years ago to support increased activity in the Asia Pacific region. This has enabled ACM Global to take advantage of an established, regional central lab while benefitting from its own advanced data management systems for the centralization and harmonization of test data. With a local staff, data is integrated immediately with the centralized database, and shipping and logistics are navigated at the local level, which means tighter specimen controls and lower total costs to the sponsor.

“We are very proud to have expanded the capabilities of our on-the-ground team in India and reach a significant company milestone that reinforces our global footprint,” said Tracy Hendershott, vice president, Clinical Trials at ACM Global Central Lab. “We are evolving the concept of a hybrid lab model, which combines the advantages of a long-standing regional lab with a broad test menu, a rich database of historical test results, deep regulatory expertise and combining that with our Mumbai based-employees to manage all activity critical to the success of a clinical trial. We have received very positive feedback from our customers that benefit from this cost-effective method of managing central lab services.”

All studies conducted by the CAP-certified lab are assured precise analytical data managed from a central location with one harmonized database.
