MORRISVILLE, N.C., Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Gentris Corporation (www.gentris.com), a global leader in pharmacogenomics and biorepository solutions, announced today the completion of a significant expansion to their Morrisville, N.C. facility. The first phase of the expansion included additional office space and a large, multipurpose conference room, which will accommodate scientific training and education programs. The second phase of construction tripled the available capacity of the clinical sample biorepository in order to meet future demand.

Gentris continues to invest in capabilities and capacity to address the growing personalized medicine market. As more pharmaceutical companies pursue biomarker-driven therapeutic strategies, there is a growing need to collect and store patient samples for analysis. The expanded biorepository will ensure sufficient capacity to accommodate the sample storage and management needs of pharmaceutical clients that are implementing pharmacogenomics in clinical trials. In addition to biorepository space, Gentris has added a large conference room to host scientific training and education programs that will focus on providing up-to-date information on best practices for integrating pharmacogenomics into drug development.

Eric Hall, Gentris VP of Clinical Operations and Biorepository Services, will be chairing a session on Strategic Specimen Tracking as part of the Biorepository track at the Clinical Business Expo 2012 in Boston on September 19-20.
