Local Central Lab Model in Clinical Trials

To overcome the problem with biologic sample logistics in multicentric clinical trials, a new model of 'local central lab' is coming up.

The local lab will conduct the trial in its region. In addition to the sample analysis, it will support the clinical sites and take care of the inbound and outbound samples and kit logistics. The data will be transferred to the global data manager according to the global central lab's specifications
The recent issue of 'Applied Clinical Trials' has an article on this upcoming model.
