Eurofins Scientific Group, announced today that it will extend its capabilities in global Kit Packing and Distribution Services by opening a GMP compliant Kit Packing and Distribution facility in Louisville, KY, US.

The 10,000 square foot facility is strategically located in near proximity of the largest UPS worldwide air facility in the US, Worldhub® at the Louisville International Airport.

As a continued commitment to providing BOLD central laboratory services, Eurofins Central Laboratory is a turnkey provider which deploys lean, globally standardized processes, enabling high quality GMP compliant kits to be distributed worldwide.

"Our care for patient specimens does not commence when clinical trial samples arrive at one of our Central Laboratory facilities in US, Europe, or Asia. We made the decision to further enhance transparency and control over the production and distribution of our, customized specimen collection kits," explains Elena Logan, Senior Vice President. "With 2 Eurofins wholly owned Kit Packing and Distribution Facilities in US and Europe, we are in full control to use our wealth of experience to deploy the best processes, people and systems to not only meet, but exceed our clients' expectations".

"This year, we assembled and distributed over 1 Million clinical trial specimen collection kits globally, as well as provided patient centric self-collection kits directly to patients' homes. Our Kit Packing and Distribution Services are also available as a stand-alone service. With an integrated MRP [Material Requirements Planning] system, the Louisville operation allows quick expansion of services into 2018 and beyond," said Lisa Fotheringham, Vice President, Operations.

Elena Logan, Senior Vice President Eurofins Central Laboratory elaborates: "With increasing complexity of clinical study protocols, and a focus on moving trials closer to patients, specimen collection kits have become more complex. Eurofins Central Laboratory is dedicated to challenging the status quo and continually evaluates ways to improve the client and site experience while remaining competitive in the marketplace. This investment in our Louisville facility is an example of such commitment"
