Local Laboratory Services

Our network of affiliate laboratories across Australia, New Zealand, Europe and US means we have local resources - wherever you are.

The Sonic Clinical Trials local laboratory model is best suited for acute care and Phase I studies.

Acute care studies, such as oncology studies, often require immediate turn-around-time of results and, hence, the transportation or centralising of samples into the one location is often not an option. A unique solution utilising Australian Sonic Healthcare laboratories has been established and managed via the SCT team, ensuring seamless data collection throughout Australia
