Finding an APS

Does finding a preclinical contract research organization (CRO) feel like looking for a needle in a haystack? APS understands. We call your challenge, “finding an APS.”

To us, “finding an APS” means locating that perfect partner. A company with a team that understands you, your goals and the obstacles you must overcome to reach them.


APS understands research optimization

APS offers you experts who know just what it takes to support you throughout all project phases. Seasoned professionals, all poised to help you make informed decisions that ultimately save you money, time, materials, resources and rework.


APS welcomes challenging research

APS doesn’t shy away from ambiguity that’s inherent in custom projects. Here, we have the equipment, technology and expertise to do what other labs can’t – or won’t – and we can do them better, faster and typically for less cost. But don’t take our word for it, challenge us with your research project and determine for yourself.


APS takes “commitment” and “capacity” to the next level

There are no surprises when you partner with APS. For example, when we say “we have the capacity to serve you,” it’s not just lip service. Shop around and try to find a partner bold enough to have installed three digital cardiac cath lab suites, jump head first into adding biocompatibility offerings and have the ability to house more than 500 large animals and 2,000 small animals on the same campus in environmentally controlled vivariums. Plus, we keep growing to serve your needs.
