Testimonial

Testimonial

We contracted Cell&Co to store, at a single, secure site, all the remaining samples after closeout of our clinical studies. Cell&Co assembled a large number of samples from European CROs into a single collection. The objective was to have easy access to these biological resources in order to be able to repeat assays or perform new analyses. Cell&Co’s understanding, flexibility and responsiveness enable them to easily accommodate our new requests. This partner boosts the efficiency of our organization and simplifies our work, enabling us to focus on our core business.
