medinet_labEurofins Global Central Laboratory is one of the industries leading global central laboratories worldwide, supporting clinical trials in more than 50 countries across six continents. At Eurofins, laboratory science is our sole focus and we are fully dedicated to providing standardized, high quality global central laboratory services to support all phases of clinical trials. With over 20 years of experience and scientific accomplishment, our laboratory testing portfolio has become one of the widest available in the pharmaceutical industry and offers the synergy of integrating all laboratory services in clinical trials.

Eurofins Global Central Laboratory supports its customers with six wholly owned and harmonized facilities in the United States, the Netherlands, France, India, Singapore and China. Our laboratories use the same global standard operating procedures, and the same global reference ranges through uniform instruments, reagents, and analytical methods. All of our owned laboratories are connected to one global LIMS.

If required, we can extend our global footprint through our standardized partner network with local central laboratories in Japan, South Africa and Argentina.

These harmonized laboratories use the same global standard operating procedures, reference ranges and state-of-the-art IT infrastructure to assure standardized data for submission to health authorities worldwide.

Eurofins is one of only three companies worldwide with this global capability.

Eurofins Global Central Laboratory provides a full range of services to support every stage of drug development, from preclinical, through clinical phases, through post marketing.
