VIEW JOBS 2/7/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-05-08T00:00 Job Overview Global Specimen Solutions (GSS) is wholly owned a company of Covance Inc. providing specialty CRO services in the holistic specimen tracking space. GCS provides innovative software and analytics that answers the 3 questions a Pharma company needs before they can fully leverage their biorepository. These questions are: 1) "Where is the specimen" – GSS virtually tracks specimens during the life of the trial and after in order to pinpoint their location whenever there is a need to use it for either further research within the trial or for future bio research. 2) "Is the specimen interesting to me" – GSS captures a large amount of specimen meta-data to ensure that the researcher can evaluate if the specimen is going to meet their exacting criteria. 3) "Am I allowed to use the specimen for what I want" - GSS has a revolutionary way of determining Informed Consent permissions on specimens, that the subject has consented to, in order to ensure the compliant use of the specimen. We do this with advanced data acquisition tooling that we have created specifically for ingesting specimen tracking data from the various systems involved with clinical trials. From CTMS system, to Central Lab LIMS or small Bioanalytical lab systems through eDC or IVRT, we can consume any data with our patented DeToxify data cleansing and loading engine. In order to facilitate the above we also have two other products to assist. We have a full LIMS system that can run the Pharma's own physical biorepository, and internal specialty labs, that is fully integrated to the Analytics, and a mobile app that identifies the specimen at point of creation. We are currently growing at a phenomenal rate and are looking for those of you who have the Right Stuff to help us keep up with this unprecedented demand. We have the best of both worlds to offer you in your career advancement; that of a dynamic, agile small company with the backing and stability of a large corporation.
