International footprint

Wherever you are in your product development pipeline, ABL has established protocols and trained personnel for rapid study set-up at facilities located in the U.S. and Europe.

We can either transfer your method to our labs or our team can work with you to adapt or develop a novel suitable method. In most cases, samples can be assayed on fresh or frozen samples and the results provided to you in a preferred format.
