Medpace Completes Relocation of Medpace Reference Laboratories (MRL) to Site of New Corporate Campus, Doubling Medpace Central Laboratory Capacity

CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwire - Sep 6, 2012) -   Medpace, Inc. today announced the opening of Medpace Reference Laboratories (MRL) at 5365 Medpace Way, Cincinnati, OH. The existing MRL facility in Norwood will close at the conclusion of the move.

Medpace's new central lab facility is designed with 50,000 square feet of customized space, featuring state-of-the-art instrumentation and dedicated project teams. MRL will maintain existing Medpace methodology and operating procedures across their four global labs. The new facility is twice the size of the former MRL footprint, allowing for expanded support of global studies that Medpace conducts on behalf of Sponsors. 

MRL has industry-leading quality assurance and accreditation including CDC Part III (Gold standard) lipid standardization, NGSP (level I) certification and CAP accreditation. MRL uses Clintrak®, Medpace's proprietary decision support software for managing trial specifics in real time and providing Sponsor direct access to their data.

"MRL teams have always provided operational excellence and gold standard methods in all therapeutic areas we support," said Dr. August Troendle, President, Medpace. "We have now increased the scale and infrastructure of the labs, ensuring that Medpace can smoothly expand our support for new and esoteric biomarkers that our Sponsors would like available." 

Medpace Reference Laboratories join Medpace global headquarters, Medpace Clinical Research Organization (CRO), and Medpace Clinical Pharmacology Unit (MCPU) at the new Medpace Way Campus.
