ACM Global Central Lab Expands to New Facility

US Specimen Processing Department moves to cater for growth in clinical trials

ACM Global Central Laboratory, the global central lab that continually defines the customer-service standard with its flexible approach, today announced the specimen processing department at its US site, located in Rochester, NY, has completed a successful move into a new 7,200 square feet facility. The specimen processing department, responsible for opening packages containing specimens shipped to ACM for testing, sample Quality Control and specimen accessioning, has expanded into space next door to the main site to allow for the increase in workload and capacity.

The move to the new facility was prompted by the very strong growth in the demand for ACM’s clinical trials support services. The specimen processing department outgrew the space available in ACM’s headquarters. There are a total of 18 workstations available for specimen processing in the new space. Eleven new workstations were set up during construction and the final seven workstations were moved from 160 Elmgrove Park to the new building on January 14, 2011. The new facility can also hold over 20 freezers, including a liquid nitrogen tank available for specimen storage.

Renay Moore heads the department as Director of Clinical Trials Support Operations. Renay has been with ACM for over six years and was recently promoted from her role as a Senior Project Manager.

“We are excited to announce the expansion of the specimen processing department here in Rochester”, said Renay Moore. “This project started back in July 2010 and it’s thanks to the hardwork and support of our contractors and employees that the re-location has been carried out in such a timely manner.”
