With corporate headquarters in Seattle, LabConnect utilizes a network of more than 25 central laboratories on six continents, and the company’s services include routine and esoteric laboratory testing, kit building, sample management, biorepository and scientific support services for biopharmaceutical and contract research clients.
“We have grown every year since we were founded in 2002, and we are committed to maintaining our facilities with cutting-edge technology,” said Eric Hayashi, LabConnect president and CEO. “The new operations center will triple our current space in Johnson City. This will provide room for state-of-the-art sample management and biorepository capabilities as well as space for efficient kit-building operations, redundant backup power generation, administrative offices and meeting rooms.”
A detailed moving plan has been developed to ensure seamless business continuity, regulatory compliance and sample integrity, and LabConnect’s lab testing facility in Johnson City will remain in its current location.
The company also expects to add new employees to fill the new space.
Hayashi told us: "The new facility will enable us to significantly expand our biorepository and kit building capabilities while at the same time providing space for the growth of our team...LabConnect is currently supporting clinical trials in 51 countries through its Johnson City Operations center."
