Echevarne Lab was founded in 1958. The work started with the techniques to determine the hormones that used by an analytic novelty and then it was continued with incorporation of such areas like Cytogenetics and Toxicology, that complement the classical areas like Lab, Biochemistry, Hematology, Immunology and Microbiology. Later, new molecular Biology technologies were incorporated based on amplification and sequencing, applied to the fields of infectious diseases, oncology and hereditary diseases, and analytical techniques that are used, such as detection of weight spectrometry, gas chromatography (GC-MS), liquid chromatography (LC-MS/MS) and ICP-MS, the last one – for element analysis of the periodic table.
The technological and professional experience of the Lab allowed it to enter the field of clinical studies (Phases I-IV) and the creation of Pharmacokinetics unit equipped with the most modern technology, and that has the compliance certificate of Best Practices of the Lab.
The needs of our clients inspired the development of new departments, Industry and Veterinary in order to provide the comprehensive service to those companies and centers where they already have been doing medical examination of the personnel and where there was a need to analyze water, food or environmental conditions. In the same way the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries with which it works in the field of clinical studies showed the need to determine the raw materials, sterility controls, particle control in vials, etc. that can be resolved with the technical means and staff that the Lab has.
