On the basis of the cooperation agreement signed on May 10th, 2016 by Adicon and LKF, both partners have intensified the organization of the inter-laboratory cooperation. Meanwhile, a team of LKF has successfully audited Shanghai Adicon Clinical Laboratories, Inc on the basis of the international requirements for laboratories performing analyses on clinical trials samples.


For the comparability of the analytical results obtained in the laboratories of both partners new assays are currently under validation and an inter-laboratory method comparison study will be conducted. It is planned to support the first trials in cooperation with Adicon beginning in Q3 of 2017.


LKF is delighted about the partnership. ADICON was one the first laboratories in China accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) and has been operating in China as a clinical reference laboratory for more than 10 years. With its meanwhile 17 branches, ADICON ranks among China’s biggest laboratories. ADICON is working with a well-established logistics system across China and therefore positions itself as an ideal partner for LKF to manage global studies conducted in China
