Growing Need for Bioanalytical Services by Clients Results in Lab Expansion for Smithers Avanza

Smithers Avanza, a contract research organization supporting the pharmaceutical industry, announced that its Bioanalytical Services Division has completed the second expansion of its bioanalytical laboratory in the last two years. The expansion doubles the size of the Gaithersburg, Maryland lab, which now offers 15,000 square feet of space, and continues the trend of growth in support of client demand for services.

“We are very fortunate to count some of the world’s leading biopharmaceutical companies as our clients and friends,” said Ira DuBey, Executive Vice President, Bioanalytical Services Division, Smithers Avanza. “Through these relationships, we are given an opportunity to grow in order to be the best possible partner, which often involves a need for additional space, staff and new equipment to meet an increasing volume of projects.”

As part of the expansion, the company is augmenting its lab’s capabilities through new instruments such as the recently added Gyros GyroLab xPS workstation as well as the Simoa HD-1 Analyzer from Quanterix.
