Gateway Analytical, a new quality-focused analytical testing and consulting services company, opened its doors for business last week. Despite a weak economy, testing companies like Gateway Analytical are thriving, with an expected annual growth rate of 5.7% in the next five years according to a March 2010 IBISWorld report on U.S. laboratory testing services. ChemImage launched the company as a subsidiary.
“Gateway Analytical fills a necessary niche out there—providing regulatory expertise in the face of increased government regulations on consumer, pharmaceutical and food products,” said David Exline, Senior Vice President of Gateway Analytical. “We’ve invested substantial funds to bring this expertise to the Pittsburgh area.”
Offering a blend of conventional and innovative testing methods, the company’s 3,000-square foot facility serves businesses in the materials science, pharmaceutical and forensics industries. With a focus on quality, Gateway Analytical scientists have expertise in a number of regulatory processes and procedures, including ISO, current good manufacturing practices (cGMP), Quality by Design (QbD) and American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors Laboratory Accreditation Board (ASCLD/LAB).
