NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Response Genetics has opened a lab in Scotland to offer genetic analysis services to pharmaceutical companies, and plans to open additional labs in Asia, the company said today.
The lab, which is located in Edinburgh and is the company’s second sample-analysis center, is now open and is “fully equipped” to develop diagnostics and analyze clinical trial samples and is in line with “current quality assurance guidelines,” the company said.
Response Genetics also has a genetic-analysis lab in Los Angeles, where it is headquartered.
The Scotland facility is “the first step towards implementing the corporate strategy to standardize genetic testing globally,” Response CEO Kathleen Danenberg said in a statement.
“We expect to continue this expansion with the opening of new laboratories in Asia,” she added.
