The article reports that central laboratories which have played an important role in drug development, are now looking for decentralization and regional labs are becoming more active in global clinical trials. With sponsors seeking real-time data access and faster results, labs are conducting nearly all the necessary testing including those on complex analytical platforms, requiring esoteric testing and biomarker capabilities.
