Cerba Research is closely monitoring updates related to COVID-19 and will implement processes to ensure smooth running of all biomarker, central laboratory and in-vitro diagnostics services during this time, as needed. These processes are focused on the well-being and safety of our employees, our customers, investigator sites and the participants.
As of today, we are continuing to operate as normal; Cerba Research is in close communication with couriers to ensure timely follow up of collection and transportation of test samples and will communicate for affected areas where needed.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) Director General’s Opening Remarks at the weekly mission briefing on COVID-19 on 4th March, the WHO has raised its assessment of the risk of spread and the risk of impact to very high at the global level. This link provides more information from the briefing.
In response to this assessment;
• Actions have been taken to protect Cerba Research staff and ensure business continuity.
• Cerba Research have implemented a travel advisory and all employees globally will not be permitted to travel, unless extreme circumstances require it.
• All employees have received training and guidance on personal protection measures.
• Regular internal and external updates will be provided as needed as we continue to monitor the situation.
