PerkinElmer celebrates sales growth of OneSource Laboratory Services business in Europe
PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader focused on the health and safety of people and the environment, announced that it is celebrating the substantial sales growth of its OneSource Laboratory Services business in Europe with the recent implementation of its 60th on-site service solution.
By consolidating laboratory services under one provider, OneSource provides customers with significant cost savings combined with improved service quality and delivery. OneSource has enjoyed steady growth in Europe over the last ten years and increased its customer base by 30 per cent from 2007 to 2008.
OneSource provides a comprehensive portfolio of laboratory services including corrective and preventive maintenance, qualification and calibration, laboratory relocation and asset disposition. Encompassing all major equipment manufacturers and technologies, OneSource now covers over 50,000 analytical and life science laboratory assets across Europe from general apparatus (such as refrigerators, freezers, balances and dissolution technology) to multi-component hyphenated instrumentation (such as LC/MS/MS).
In 2008, OneSource broadened its portfolio of regulatory compliance services with the acquisition of LabMetrix Technologies SA, and now offers one of the industry\'s most robust instrument qualification solutions. Combining an advanced, patented, metrology-based approach with proven processes and compliance expertise, OneSource is helping more laboratories achieve their financial, operational and scientific goals. While strategically addressing pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, OneSource is now increasingly being employed in industries ranging from crop science and animal health to cosmetics, consumer health care and chemicals.
On the expansion of customer partnerships Dusty Tenney, president of Laboratory Services, PerkinElmer, comments, We are thrilled with these latest growth opportunities. With 12 new sites implementing our OneSource solution in 2009 already, we look forward to helping even more customers increase laboratory productivity and reduce laboratory service costs during this economic downturn. Our complete multi-vendor solutions allow scientists to concentrate on research while we focus on providing best-in-class service and quality to maintain and ensure the regulatory compliance of their equipment..
