Kits and Logistics

Your test kit can make a difference.

Industry-Leading Kits

Attention to content detail, on-time delivery, and ease of use make a difference. Covance has earned the trust of biopharmaceutical companies globally, shipping more than 4.4 million kits per year. And it's why clinical trial investigators name Covance as their “most preferred” central laboratory more than three times as often as the nearest competitor.*
