Expanded Laboratory Management Solutions (ELMS)

Focus your resources on innovation, not on laboratory management.

Our extensive assay menu covers about 98% of all clinical trial laboratory test needs.

And we take accountability for the other 2% through our Expanded Laboratory Management Solutions (ELMS) service.

ELMS provides comprehensive management of lab performance and promotes data quality to enhance your trial’s success. ELMS will source, qualify, monitor and report results from a select group of pre-audited esoteric laboratories. ELMS provides study-to-study consistency for all trials, large and small, where testing data is being routed from external labs through Covance.

The ELMS services include change management, scientific assay review, and monitoring of key performance metrics – uniformly conducted for all external testing managed by Covance. This allows Covance to provide regulatory-compliant data assured of quality, freeing your organization to focus on scientific discovery and drug development.
