Gene Logic Finishes Expanding Facilities for Contract Study Services, Nonclinical Testing

NEW YORK, June 9 (GenomeWeb News) - Gene Logic has finished expanding its contract study services facility, the company said today.

 

The firm said its general toxicology testing capacity has increased 55 percent, while the area dedicated to its nonclinical testing services facilities now totals more than 100,000 square feet.

 

"The demand for testing has grown faster than the industry's ability to provide it," said VW Brinkerhoff, senior vice president and general manager at Gene Logic.
