We were setting up a clinical study in DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo) where we were going to assay thyroid hormones. As sample storage and transportation conditions were planned for remote locations, we had to cover the risk of the cold chain being broken and be able to prove in advance that our analytical data would be reliable should the samples thaw. Our complex issue was explained to Cell&Co, which was able to rise to the challenge by suggesting a bespoke stability test for thyroid hormones. We gained immense support from their commitment and advice and it is clear that they were able to fully understand our issues. Their adaptability and empathy subsequently made the collaboration uncomplicated and highly successful. Lastly, the quality of the study's stability results enabled us to carry out our clinical trial with complete peace of mind.
