Offering support for your clinical trials program

Bioanalysis Optimized: Accurate, Reliable, and Customized Bioanalytical Assays

ABS Laboratories, now part of ACM Global Laboratories, can help optimize your drug development program and ensure that you have the technical insight needed to successfully complete your bioanalytical studies. Our chemists have the expertise and flexibility to assist you with complex assay method development and validation for the quantification of drugs, metabolites, and biomarkers in biological samples.

Pharmaceutical research and development is a complex and demanding endeavor. While the pace and scope of scientific information accumulates rapidly, most clinical trials take approximately seven years to complete. However, on average less than 12% of drugs entering clinical testing are approved. To increase the likelihood of success, it is critical to connect with experts that understand the complexities of the industry.

ABS is your strategic partner. We provide sound scientific strategies that enable you to obtain the information that you need to make timely, data-driven decisions about the direction of your preclinical or clinical trial program.
