Service That Makes a Difference

We assign a project team to each study, so you are always working with people already familiar with the details of your trial. Should you have an urgent question or need, you can count on a prompt response from your Gamma-Dynacare project team − usually within two hours of your query. We even provide after-hours support for those times when you need to extend your working day beyond 9-to-5.

Reliable Logistics and Transportation Support

Each day, we face and successfully meet the logistical challenges of collecting and transporting thousands of specimens across the country. Our well-trained and certified staff − fully proficient in Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) and International Air Transportation Association (IATA) requirements − track every shipment in progress and provide clear documentation along with the appropriate work aids. We also have the logistical expertise to carefully and efficiently manage the storage and transfer of your samples as required by your study protocol.
