Alkemist Labs speeds up turnaround time for identity testing

Alkemist Labs (Garden Grove, CA) says it has shortened turnaround times for common identity tests by 20%-an average of four days sooner.

Alkemist Labs (Garden Grove, CA) says it has shortened turnaround times for common identity tests by 20%-an average of four days sooner. These tests are among the most common identity tests, including routine HPTLC and microscopy.

In a press release, Alkemist Labs CEO, Elan Sudberg, said: “We know that rapid turnaround time for identity testing is the biggest need our clients have. While we were consistently delivering accurate results in five days, we know that one less day is an added advantage for our customers. In a climate of frequent consolidation and restructured labs that can adversely impact customer service, we’re proud to meet the needs of our clients.”

The company says that the increased efficiencies came as part of the lab’s move last year to a new, expanded facility-a 21,000-sq-ft facility with a much larger laboratory area-during which time the company focused on “intensive staff training, taking quality and safety in testing to an even higher level, and implementing lean efficiencies in production,” says lab director Dr. Toto Phoutthavantha-all of which helped decrease turnaround time.
