Unity’s ACM Global Celebrates Expanded Lab Facilities with Grand Opening Event in York, UK

 ACM Global Central Laboratory celebrated the expansion of its laboratory operations in Europe with a grand opening event and ribbon-cutting ceremony at its new, state-of-the-art facility in York, England on January 17. The day-long event, which was attended by existing and prospective clients along with the Lord Mayor of York, Councilor Keith Hyman, included guided tours of the new 14,500 square-foot facility, a workshop, and evening networking reception.

As part of its commitment to helping clients navigate the ever-changing landscape of clinical trials testing, ACM Global hosted the latest in its “Navigating Global Clinical Trials with Your Central Lab” workshop series at the event. Executives from ACM Global, PSI Pharma Support Intl, Meso Scale Discovery, Randox, and TNT Express (are these the accurate, formal names of these companies?) shared their insights on the interaction of global and regional laboratories during the conduct of clinical trials in emerging markets, advancements in biomarker multiplexing, and logistical strategies for clinical trial sample management. The workshop concluded with a question and answer session and a networking reception, where attendees were given an opportunity to hear from ACM Global and its partners on their perspectives on central and regional laboratories, based on lessons learned from managing global clinical trials testing.

ACM Global announced its relocation to the expanded facility, which is nearly twice the size of its previous facility in York, in November in response to growing client demand for its clinical trials testing services throughout the region. The new European hub serves as home to ACM Global’s expanding laboratory operations, as well as to its growing staff of data analysts, project managers and quality assurance specialists.

“We couldn’t be happier with the turnout at our grand opening event and ribbon-cutting ceremony,” said Jerry Boxall, managing director, Europe at ACM Global Central Laboratory. “The day’s festivities were a great way to highlight our success and commitment to the region, and offered our clients an opportunity to meet with staff one-on-one as well as get an inside look at our new laboratory operations.”
