Operational since 1996, The Central Laboratory at DiagnoSearch Life Sciences is one of the first Central Laboratories in India. Headed by Dr. Manisha Ginde, MD, it is driven by quality and is dedicated to Phase I through Phase IV clinical research across a broad range of therapeutic areas. Over time, it has supported trials across a wide geographical expanse globally and within India. Beyond standard laboratory risks the laboratory is also geared to detect data risks in real time as its database is integrated with the review platform at DiagnoSearch Wide-Angle-Data.
Accreditations and Certifications
College of American Pathologists (CAP)
National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) as per ISO15189
National Glycohemoglobin Standardization Program (NGSP) Level I

A Strong Quality Base
The Laboratorys Quality Management System follows a consistent approach to Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). The Laboratory processes built upon its accreditation standards and guidelines are reinforced by ensuring adherence to additional international guidelines and standards such as Good Clinical Laboratory Practices (GCLP), Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) and European Medicine Agency (EMA) standards to make its operations compliant to global regulatory requirements.
Additionally, the Laboratory routinely participates in a broad range of proficiency programs and follows robust method validation protocols to ensure that the results are always accurate. The Laboratory also adopts multiple quality indicators to monitor and continuously improve laboratory performance.
Comprehensive Testing Menu
Utilization of global standard operating procedures uniform instruments, reagents and analytical methods for laboratory testing enable us harmonize with other laboratories resulting in global laboratory data for submission to health authorities worldwide. Our laboratory instruments are interfaced with the Laboratory Information System (LIS) to ensure timely and accurate result reporting.
Our testing menu offers:
Standard Safety Testing extending to urine Drugs of Abuse
Efficacy Analysis for parameters from hormones, tumor markers, infectious disease markers and others
Therapeutic Drugs Testing
We can also set up and validate additional tests based on the protocol specific requirements.
Laboratory Project Management
Every clinical study is undertaken as a project with a dedicated Laboratory Project Management Team. The Laboratory Project Management Team has a comprehensive background in Clinical Trial Management and Central Laboratory Operations. Acting as the liaison between other study stakeholders, this Team assesses potential risks prior to the beginning of a study and maintains transparency throughout the entire study, assuring accuracy and timeliness in the reporting of results. Customization is the key for project implementation by the Laboratory. The role of the Laboratory Project Management Team is inclusive of, but not limited to, the following:
Identification of potential study risks and plan strategies for its mitigation
Conceptualization and execution of the site training program
Maintain robust, effective and efficient communication flow between all project stakeholders
Consultation for laboratory related regulatory requirements
Laboratory supply management
Logistics support and management – Domestic and International
