CASE STUDY: PerkinElmer Helps UCB Minimize Risk and Downtime During Highly Sensitive Lab Relocation
UCB is a global leader in the biopharmaceutical industry, which currently houses over 3,000 assets from PerkinElmer’s OneSource® Laboratory Services. Due to a significant number of UCB’s laboratories recently undergoing refurbishment projects, over 30 pieces of highly sensitive medical equipment needed to be swiftly and safely transported to new locations.
In collaboration with Andrew Porter Ltd., a specialist laboratory relocation services provider, PerkinElmer OneSource was able to not only provide critical pre-move benchmarking and decommissioning, but was able to transport the equipment safely and securely within a matter of hours. The OneSource site engineers were available throughout the move to ensure smooth delivery as well as perform the required re-commissioning services, thus enabling the lab to keep running with minimal downtime.
At a time when consolidation and operational restructuring is at an all time high within the European pharmaceutical and biotech industries, there is a significant need for lab relocation services that can manage the entire relocation process for highly valuable and sensitive medical equipment. By partnering with Andrew Porter Ltd., PerkinElmer OneSource is able to extend its scope of services and footprint to provide an unprecedented approach to the transfer of instrumentation, temperature controlled specimens, data, and dangerous goods, while adhering to strict GxP standards, to any location across Europe and beyond.
