Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) October 27, 2011
Life Science Strategy Group (LSSG), the leading strategic consulting firm to the CRO industry, is pleased to announce the launch of its new syndicated report, Clinical Trial Investigator Satisfaction & Central Laboratory Performance. This landmark study of 550 clinical trial investigators globally demonstrates that the selection of a preferred central laboratory plays an important role with overall investigator satisfaction. The analysis also shows that clinical trial investigators have a strong preference for Covance Central Laboratory Services (54%), followed by Quintiles Central Laboratories (18%) and Quest Diagnostics Clinical Trials (9%). Covance Central Laboratory Services consistently scored higher than other labs across a variety of performance metrics.
The market research was conducted to better understand investigator satisfaction with clinical trial sponsors, alignment between sponsors' needs and the realities of running a clinical trial site, preferences for central laboratories, and the degree to which the central laboratory selected by the sponsor impacts an investigator's willingness to work with a sponsor on future clinical trials. According to Jon Meyer, Principal, Life Science Strategy Group, "Investigators have a clear preference for central laboratories, and when a sponsor selects the preferred central lab, the investigator is more satisfied and willing to work with that sponsor in the future."
