The CTU Specimen Processing Center serves as a one-stop unit for processing, storing, and shipping research samples collected from research patients.
The CTU Specimen Processing Center contains dedicated laboratory space and skilled research personnel that can assist investigators with specimen processing; provide advice on sample collection, as well as facilitate the shipping and handling of biological materials. The staff is highly experienced in collecting and processing serial blood sampling for pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) assessments.
The Center can accommodate samples such as blood, saliva, sputum, urine, stool, hair follicles, and other types of specimens. In addition, the Center is able to perform specialized processing for studies in which the assays are performed in the investigator’s lab, research core lab, or sponsor’s central lab.
