Central Lab Market Dynamics and Outsourcing Performance -





Published: Q4, 2012 | Pages: 93

 
When does “centralized” not really mean “centralized?” We ask the question because the data from this report points in the direction of “central” lab services becoming more decentralized. Not necessarily from a local labs perspective, but from a service provider and regional point of view.
In this report, ISR revisits the central lab market to explore topics and trends in the global central lab market.
