The Clinical Trials Cooperative (CTC) Core Laboratory is a GLP, IATA, and IQAC certified laboratory, which provides specialized services to investigators who conduct basic, translational, and clinical research.

Some of the most important components of successful clinical research projects are sample integrity, timely sample processing, and effective sample storage -- all of which facilitate correct interpretation of subsequent assay data. The CTC Core Laboratory is specialized in handling patient samples and plays a major role in the clinical specimen processing, storage and shipping.

The Core laboratory also performs routine and specialized molecular biology, and biomarker panel assays, new test validation for translational studies, and assists the investigators for clinical trial protocols or studies.
