SEATTLE--(LabConnect, LLC has launched its new service, Scientific Operations Support (SciOps), to offer unique functional outsourcing services to the pharmaceutical research industry.)--
“With SciOps, clients get exactly who they need from our contract personnel to take on specific projects and research functions.”
According to President and Chief Executive Officer Eric Hayashi, LabConnect developed SciOps after executives perceived a need from clients for a team that could manage intricate clinical protocols as well as internal and external research development programs.
“As a leading provider of global central laboratory services for the biopharmaceutical industry, we knew that we needed to go beyond the traditional outsourcing services,” Hayashi said. “With SciOps, clients get exactly who they need from our contract personnel to take on specific projects and research functions.”
LabConnect’s SciOps team gives its clients management control from the beginning, without the time and cost strains of managing internal headcount, payroll and human resources issues. Unlike other outsourcing services, clients have access to tap into the expertise of the company’s senior personnel or specialists within the team, in order to improve study quality and process flow.
In addition to routine testing, sample tracking, data management and specialized testing, LabConnect’s professional support at all levels provides clients the ability to select the services that best fit their needs and budget.
“The degree of integration with client operation often allows the SciOps team to make specific, objective recommendations for product and process improvement,” Hayashi said.
LabConnect’s SciOps team is comprised of industry experts, with a minimum of 10 years of experience. Recent additions to the expanding SciOps team include Keala Tyler, M.S., senior project manager; Ricardo Savedra, Ph.D., MBA, senior manager; Hermioni Zouridis, Ph.D., bioinformaticist; Jenevie Slavicek, vendor contracts administrator and Marc Jones, MBA, principal data specialist.
