Marken Opens Patient-Sample-Collection Kit Assembly Center in China
Marken, a Research Triangle Park, North Carolina-based provider of logistic and supply-chain services for clinical trial materials, has opened a new center in Shanghai, China for patient-sample-collection kit assembly.
This is the company’s third location for kit building in addition to Hamburg, Germany, and Singapore. The new 370-square-meter facility is located in the Pudong district of Shanghai and includes a processing area for patient-sample-collection kit assembly, a temperature-controlled storage area, and office space.
The existing Shanghai logistics office will be co-located, which allows the combined facility to import raw materials and distribute kits domestically throughout China in addition to moving biological samples and clinical drug products.
