Biomarkers reveal measurable indicators that can show a drug’s efficacy. Providing the right biomarkers will reveal key insights that will help drive your clinical trials to the next stage. At MLM we provide integrated biomarker assay development and validation that allow us to deliver data that has a high degree of clinical relevance for your drug development program. With more than 1000 specialized assays developed, our extensive library of biomarker testing can streamline your study—saving time and resources.
The ability to properly assemble, package and distribute clinical trial kits is a key component to successful multicenter trials. MLM specializes in designing and building customized trial kits that meet specific study requirements. Our best-in-class clinical trial kits such as our patented MLM Safeguard Box® are designed to safeguard your samples and simplify the sample collection process. We provide clinical trial kits to more than 70 countries.

The collection and preservation of biological samples is key for the successful outcome of any drug development program. MLM is the biological storage provider for companies around the globe because we help companies achieve success by ensuring reliable biomaterial storage while providing quick and efficient availability for study and analysis. MLM Sample Storage System® allows samples to be identified and retrieved within 10 minutes of a request. We offer biological sample storage services for as little as a few days to more than 20 years at all temperature ranges including ultra-low temperatures to -80 degrees Celsius and in liquid nitrogen (-196 degrees Celsius). To round up our quality sample management services we also offer premium point of collection sample tracking through our partnership with TruLab.
MMLM has successfully developed and validated more than 1000 biomarker assays. Our experienced scientists using state-of-the-art instrumentation have worked to design, optimize, evaluate, qualify, verify, and validate a variety of assays that improve the prediction of a potential drug candidate’s efficacy and safety. MLM has expertise in developing routine or custom assays in a variety of therapeutic areas/indications such as hematologic disease, inflammation/immunology, metabolic disease, and cardiovascular diseases.
MLM supports each stage of development by providing insightful assessment of tissue parameters through our preclinical histology services. From staining to assessments, our laboratories are equipped to accommodate highly customizable and standard analyses for all tissue types (rodent, bovine and human). Our experienced scientists and technicians provide services ranging from processing and embedding samples, to IHC assay development, to analysis via custom pathologist assessments, and/or automated image analysis.
MLM has a long history of developing and validating immunoassays and providing our customers with the in-depth data analyses they need to make an informed decision regarding the commercial potential of a new drug.
With our comprehensive animal laboratory and staff of experienced scientists and technicians, MLM is professionally qualified to deliver accurate and reliable preclinical assessments. Our preclinical capabilities include basic in-vitro assays ranging from cell-based mechanism of action studies and compound screening to well-characterized in- vivo preclinical disease models for pharmacology and efficacy assessments, which may be supplemented by ex-vivo services. We have a wide range of proven preclinical disease models for areas such as metabolic disorders, dermal inflammation, and respiratory disorders to name a few. We also collaborate with customers to develop unique in-vitro and in-vivo models for analyses of new drugs.
Stringent sample analyses is vital for the development of new drugs at all stages. We perform (pre-) clinical safety lab testing based on experience gained from performing testing on thousands of samples per week. We offer standard and fully customizable biological specimen testing and auxiliary logistics services across a wide spectrum of therapeutic areas. MLM has an extensive portfolio of safety testing protocols including specialized areas such as hematology, coagulation, clinical chemistry, urinalysis, and serology to mention a few.
