Covance, the most experienced provider of clinical trial central laboratory services in the world, has five dedicated laboratories in the United States, Switzerland, Singapore, China and Japan. In the past five years alone, Covance central laboratories have conducted more than 197 million laboratory tests for more than 3,600 clinical trial protocols in more than 95 countries, working with more than 115,000 investigator sites.
The "Clinical Trial Investigator Satisfaction and Central Laboratory Performance" survey, conducted earlier this month by the Life Science Strategy Group, questioned physicians actively participating in pharmaceutical industry-sponsored clinical trials as investigators. Participants were prescreened to ensure a high level of involvement and/or key decision-making authority for their investigative site. All global geographies and practice settings were represented, as were more than 20 medical specialties. The mean experience level in a clinical trial setting was 13.4 years.
