Case Study: ELF Sample Analysis
Our latest case study details how we helped advance our client’s clinical trial by customizing a commercially available plate-based assay to increase its sensitivity. This improvement allowed us to accurately determine drug concentration in the epithelial lining fluid (ELF) samples collected during their study.

New Laboratory in Beijing
MicroConstants China has relocated their laboratory to a new 8,000 square foot facility in the Huilongsen International Science & Technology Park, a premier life science park located in the Beijing Development Area (eTown). The Park occupies approximately 165,000 square feet of land, has more than 300,000 square feet of total building space, and is less than one hour away from the Beijing Capital Airport.
Previously, MicroConstants China had occupied two separate facilities in Beijing. With this move, they are able to consolidate their clinical trial management and bioanalysis operations into one location to better serve their customers. The new space features a bioanalytical laboratory, mass spectrometry laboratory, sample preparation room, freezer room, reference standards room, and archive storage space. The facility is equipped with enhanced security features including video surveillance, badge controlled access, and a fire alarm and sprinkler system.
After more than a month of intense testing and qualification of all equipment, MicroConstants China is ready to perform GLP-compliant bioanalysis at the new facility. The Netherlands GLP Compliance Monitoring Programme, who issued MicroConstants China an Endorsement of GLP Compliance last year, has scheduled an on-site visit in June to inspect the new facility for GLP compliance.
