Quintiles Central Lab, Clinical Development in China to Expand, Relocate to New Facility

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Quintiles Transnational Corp. today announced the expansion and consolidation of its Global Central Laboratories and Clinical Development Services (CDS) units in Beijing to accommodate their growing business in China.

The new consolidated Quintiles China facility, with more than 17,000 square feet of space, is located at Sun Dong Ann Plaza in Beijing, about one block from the previous lab site in the Peking Union Medical College Hospital (PUMCH). The new facility expands the lab space by 2,600 square feet. The lab has 13 employees and continues to add staff. CDS occupies 10,000 square feet of the combined office area, a major expansion over its old facility of under 3,000 square feet. The CDS staff strength continues to grow in Beijing and is expected to reach more than 60 people over the next 12 months.

"Quintiles' business is growing at a significant rate, and our larger facility will allow us to efficiently accommodate both the growth and our expanding test menu, which have moved well beyond basic safety testing to include specialized chemistry, PCR testing and complex flow cytometry," said Tom Wollman, Senior Vice President, Global Central Laboratories.

"We would like to thank the Peking Union Medical College Hospital for all that it has done to help Quintiles establish and expand our Central Laboratory in China," Wollman said. "PUMCH is one of the premier tertiary centers in Beijing, and we will continue to foster our close working relationship with key laboratory and scientific staff."

Lai Lee Tan, head of Clinical Operations and General Manager in China, said the consolidation of CDS and Central Lab operations in a single facility will improve coordination and efficiency for Quintiles' customers. "Our clinical development business is poised for rapid acceleration in China, and bringing our CDS and Global Labs businesses together will help our customers. The globalization of clinical research is continuing to increase, and China is just beginning to see the rapid growth we have experienced in India, Australia and throughout Asia Pacific."

Quintiles' China central lab is certified by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) and the National Glycohemoglobin Standardization Program (NGSP).
